    Photograph of crowds gathered around a man dressed as a dragon during the Chinese New Year Celebration, Chinatown, 1920-1929. At center, a man can be seen wearing a decorative Chinese dragon head over his body. The body of the costume consists of elaborate patterns and cloths.

To the left of the dragon, a series of tables can be seen stacked on one another. On each table, a wooden chair has been placed. A single man stands below one of the tables and faces towards the demonstration. less
