  1. It was a fact of life with Southern Chinese families – there were no adult males in this early 1969 picture because the men had all rushed off to seek a fortune / ‘gold’ in America, leaving the women behind. This was taken in a photographic studio near Num Bin Toon (pronounced in the Toisan dialect) / Nom Bing Chuen (in Cantonese) – the YEE / YU village, in Sei Yup (the 4 counties).
