Date:
07/04/1926?
Description:
Part of the Millstone parade in honor of the 150th Anniversary (Sesquicentennial) of U.S. Independence. This section of the parade features two floats. The rear-most one, also the one closest to the camera, was fielded by the V.F.W. (Veterans of Foreign Wars) and features three young men dressed as World War I dough boys and what may be a "body" on a stretcher with a nurse (the figure in white) standing over it. The float in front of that is fielded by Post No. 430 of an indeterminable group and has quite a large number of people on it. There are men dressed in the uniforms worn by American soldiers from the Revolutionary Era to the time period of the parade. On a chair amidst the men is a young woman wearing some kind of crown. In front of this float is a bus with its company name printed, illegibly, on the darker band running along its center.
