Display on stilts

Display on stilts

Chinese celebration, France, during World War I. This photograph shows four men on stilts entertaining a crowd. One of the men has a stick, another is dressed as an old man with a long grey beard and whiskers, and a third is dressed in a long robe. A band is playing in the background near the watching crowd. It is probable that this display is part of a Chinese New Year celebration put on by me…
