Rickshaw Puller

Rickshaw Puller

Precursors to the taxis that clog Hong Kong’s streets, rickshaws have all but disappeared.  A few pullers—like Chan Chow Kee, 70, pictured with his vehicle—wait at the Star Ferry Pier looking for nostalgic tourists (he charges them HK$50—or about US$7—for a spin around the block).  Most travelers avoid rickshaws, however, viewing a man-powered ride as politically incorrect.
