« San Francisco has the biggest Chinatown in the United States, so it was just naturally where Chinese nightclubs and performers thrived. There was at least one such club in New York called the China Doll. I think there may have been one or two in L.A., but the main ones were right here in San Francisco. A lot of the Chinese American population lived here, or if they didn’t live here, they lived in nearby California cities like Stockton or Sacramento, or nearby states like Oregon and Washington » Trina Robbins   (a San Francisco-based ’60s underground comix pioneer, writer, historian, and vintage-clothing collector)
