The Chinese Memorial Pavilion
The Pavilion is a memorial to the early Chinese pioneers, including those from Jiangmen, Riverside’s sister city and the home of the Chinese citrus industry, who contributed to the development of agriculture transportation and commerce in Riverside and Southern California. Funded by the Republic of China (Taiwan), the City of Riverside and the non-profit Chinese Pavilion Committee, it is located on the grounds of the Riverside Public Library.
This memorial really stood out because it was surrounded by Spanish Colonial and Renaissance Revival-style buildings.
This is another photo from my Riverside day trip.
Quote of the Day:
“I want American history taught. Unless I’m in that book, you’re not in it either. History is not a procession of illustrious people. It’s about what happens to a people. Millions of anonymous people is what history is about.”
James Baldwin (U.S. writer, 1924-1987)
