SUN YAT SEN FUNERAL

A catafalque holding the body of Prime Minister Dr. Sun Yat Sen is being transferred by 120 professional pallbearers to the Peking railway station from Piyunssu, China early morning on May 26, 1929. After four years of resting in the Western hills of Piyunssu, Sun Yat Sen's body will be entombed on Zhongshan Mountain in the eastern suburb of Nanking. The funeral procession started shortly after midnight, the highway being lighted by thousands of children carrying lanterns and torches. Dr. Sun Yat Sen died of liver cancer on March 12, 1925.
