Title:
Millstone Parade for the 150th Anniversary of U.S. Independence (4)
Date:
07/04/1926?
Description:
Part of the Millstone parade in honor of the 150th Anniversary (Sesquicentennial) of U.S. Independence. The brightly decorated car in the back (license plate no. I-) is full of ladies dressed in 18th century clothing, complete with mob caps, ruffles, and a very small parasol. One banner running vertically down the back of the car seems to say "Somerset", while the larger horizontal banner likely says "Basking Ridge". The float in front of them has four cheerful young men in fancy 18th century dress holding up an American flag. They are standing in front of a miniature log cabin. The banner on the back of the float is largely illegible, however the one along the side of the float seems to say "General Frelinghuysen Camp Middlebrook BAR".
