May Day festivals often occur in parks or schools. May Day celebrations were not all My polls. We note a California school that had a Chinese or perhaps international theme. This photo shows children from Garvanza School located in Highland Park. This was a neighborhood elementary (primary) school. It still exists today. Highland Park was a neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. The children are celebrating May Day in Elysian Park. They are dressed in Chinese costume. Four boys are carrying a girl. I think there were other national groups. We seem to see Native Americans at the right. And the children in white are presumably the Maypole dancers. The photo is undated, but looking at the boy in the background we could assume that it was taken in 1920s.
