Photograph of The Balloon Man in San Francisco's Chinatown, ca.1900. At center, a man wearing a long dark jacket and derby hat can be seen holding a large bunch of balloons. He is facing left towards a man and young boy. The man is smoking and wears a hat over his braided hair. The boy can be seen wearing a hat and vest. Another man is visible bending over behind the balloons. Buildings with covered walkways are visible behind the men and into the background. More buildings and carriages can be seen in the right background on the cobblestone street.
