Can you guess what year this photograph was taken? We'll update later with the answer and more details.

UPDATE: This photo was taken of the Port Arthur Chinese Restaurant, located at 7-9 Mott Street, in 1900. The restaurant—located on the 2nd and 3rd floors—was established in 1897, and operated for over 85 years. It was the first restaurant to receive a liquor license in Chinatown!
