Bridegroom on Wedding Hobby-horse

Slide No. 14

Formerly a great deal of rude horseplay took place at weddings, and the groom used to be escorted to the home of his bride mounted on a bamboo hobby-horse as you see him in the center of this picture. The boys on each side are holding the reins. The groom and his friend on the left are dressed in the old Loo Chooan costume and wear the turbans which were the distinctive badge of the old Loo Chooan nobility and gentry.
