Fourth of July Parade float

Title

Fourth of July Parade float

Description

A tiller-steering car with spoked wheels has been decorated for a parade, with three children in patriotic outfits. The car sports bunting and a large frame holding a bald eagle on the front. Flowers and stars and stripes are all visible on the bunting, and several United States flags are displayed. A young boy dressed as Uncle Sam sits on the drivers' seat, and two girls with crowns and bunting draped about them sit and stand in the bed of the car. In the background are staircases appearing to lead to two houses, side-by-side, and the trees are in full leaf. A boardwalk runs between the car and the stairs, and the street is dirt.
