A very familiar sight back then was to see a young mother or perhaps an elder sister carry one of the younger ones in a traditional ‘Chinese-Style’ carrier called a ‘Mei Tai’ or ‘Bei Dai’. This was a pliable rectangular cloth body panel, with four straps attached to each corner. The two bottom straps tie the body panel around the waist, apron style. The two top straps go up and over the shoulders and are tied together with the two bottoms straps in the middle of the carrier’s chest. Overall this arrangement could be adjusted to suit the baby’s or young toddler’s size and weight. This piece works very well with HKY008 who appears to be watching the young boy get his hair cut.
