None of the fancy funeral parlors, that are common in the west. These were tiny little shops, one next to the other, stacked from floor to ceiling with coffins of different shapes and styles.
The Chinese take death very seriously (as well they should) and people are traditionally buried on a hill. This is typically in a coffin in a graveyard or ashes in an urn in an isolated tomb like the pic below.
Typically the corner shop of each block was a flower shop and they were busy creating elaborate ornate flower wreaths
This is the kind of Chinese takeout you don't look forward to ordering.
I think this coffin was going to meet someone who met their maker - If you look closer, it's going the wrong way up a one way street - maybe towards the light?!
