Cottage Grove Parade
An Asian rickshaw in a 4th of July parade

Photo of Parade

This is a very rare photo of a parade in downtown Cottage Grove. It shows an Asian man pulling a "rickshaw", a traditional method of transportation in Asia. Many people from Asia immigrated to the West Coast. In Oregon, Asians often became miners and railroad workers.
