Southeast Asian Procession, Uptown Chicago, 1985

Original caption in the Daily News reads: Southeast Asians escort a float with a statue of the Virgin Mary from St. Thomas of Canterbury Church [4827 N. Kenmore] to Our Lady of Lourdes [4641 N. Ashland] in the annual May procession and mass honoring their martyrs.

I imagine the route took them right down Lawrence Avenue. Original image available on eBay at time of writing:
