This 1983 photograph depicts part of a Chinese funeral procession taking place along South Bridge Road. The hearse is elaborately decorated with embroidered flags and banners, and bears the name of the undertaker (Ang Chin Huat Undertaker). A framed picture of the deceased is placed atop the hearse in between two figurines. Relatives dressed in mourners' clothing, on the left of the picture, follow the hearse. Title devised by Library staff.
