Samsui women at work, 1986 : general view [6]


This photograph depicts three Samsui women in the interior of a building, working on the floors and the windows. From their surroundings, it is evident that they are at a construction site. They are dressed in the characteristic samsui red headgear and blue samfoo (sometimes spelt samfu), a tunic-and-trouser suit. Title devised by Library staff. Date of creation estimated.
