Chinese celebration, France, during World War I. This photograph shows a person with a large white headdress and white or pale costume walking inside a carnival float covered with paper or cloth and with a patterned cloth awning. The person’s feet can be seen under the float. A band is playing alongside.
The crowd is interesting as it includes civilians and a few children, as well as a few men in uniform and men who may be from the Labour Corps.
