Sedan Chair Ride


My granddad was one of the sedan bearers for my grandma. It was a practice to tease 

the bride by rocking the chair vigorously so that the bride will start to plead with the bearers.

The bearers can then request the bride to do what they want. It was a mean for the bearers

to entertain themselves throughout the long journey. It was the bound feet that my 

grandma revealed that had my granddad completely mesmerized and that attraction had 

them bounded together but not for long when my grandma died at a relatively early age.
