Doyers Street was originally a dead-end alley known as Dead Men's or Bloody Alley. During the tong war of 1920s, those who were chased into Doyers Street by rival tong members had no escape. The tong wars were the consequence of an increase in population as a result of migration from the West Coast, lack of resources, impermiable immigrant groups surrounding them, and prejudices held by outside communities that led to tongs vying over small areas of land to establish businesses and live their lives. Tensions were permanent throughout the history of Old Chinatown and even up to the 1930s.
