1946 Funeral Procession

Seated on the sedan chair is my great grandpa, who is very strangely outfitted in a set of costumes that I think are totally inappropriate for a typical Chinese funeral. Really in vogue considering the drabness of all those people around him. Most likely he follows the coffin vehicle for the procession? Unfortunately can't read the T-shaped road signage due right of the vehicle otherwise I could easily work out the exact whereabouts of the location.

the photo is too small to check the T shape road signage, better magnify that part and see if I can help...

I had tried playing with the levels on this photo to see if I could make the street sign clearer, but wasn't successful. We'll keep our fingers crossed that you are able to work out the street name.
