In an apparent followup to a video they posted earlier this year about Chinatown SROs, the Chron pulls back the touristy Chinatown curtain again today, to similar effect. This time, a staff photographer has written a profile of one family's life in a Chinatown SRO, where Mom prepares the daily grocery purchase in the communal kitchen and Dad has to carry his own father up the stairs on his back because there's no elevator.
