Response to brewens (Reply #8)

Mon Apr 9, 2012, 12:06 PM

23. PBS did a series, Frontier House, where they reference a historical merchant with a similar name

I have not watched it for a while but just checked and it was Hop Sin Yin. I remember from the series that a local merchant of the same name had existed and it was who they based the store clerk on...

not saying Hop Sing also existed... and Bonanza was a little before my time... but who knows...
