Chinese enclave, Haining Street

Chinese enclave, Haining Street

Cities developed ethnic enclaves in the 19th century. In Wellington, the Chinese community settled around Te Aro’s Haining and Frederick streets, shown here in 1904. The area had a disreputable and rather prejudiced reputation among the wider community as a centre of drug-taking, gambling and vice.
