Fourth of July Parade


Fourth of July Parade


Laminated photo postcard of a parade. The street side left of the image is lined with trees and parked wagons and cars; a water tower is visible in the distance. Two United States flags hang from lines across the street, and power poles are placed where the curb and dirt road meet on either side. The image right side of the street features two-story buildings with square facades. The fender of a car is visible in the right front of the image. Several floats proceed down the street toward the photographer. One is pulled by a two-horse team; the other is a car. Behind the car, a group of people march. The men watching alongside the street wear hats, and a girl in a white dress stands a bit further down the curb, watching the floats.
