上个星期一(8月8日)去过鬼城(Ghost Town)Quesnel Forks,在此简单介绍一下当年淘金热有关中国人的简况。

The little town of Quesnel Forks became an important supply centre and stopover along the gold rush trail drawing many temporary residents to the area. This was not to last. After completion of the cariboo wagon road in 1865, Quesnel Forks slipped into relative obscurity and the town of Barkerville took centre stage in a flurry of activity. Most of the remaining townspeople were Chinese immigrants, and at the time Quesnel Forks was reported to have had the third largest population of Chinese residents in British Columbia.
