Patriotic float in parade

Description

Black and white image of several men dressed as Colonial and British soldiers from the American Revolutionary War. The Colonial soldiers stand beneath a tree mostly bare of leaf, while the British soldiers stand at the back of the trailer. Signs hanging on the trailer quote famous sayings attributed to patriots of that era. A large sign reading 'Eric Marggi Shoes' dominates the background of the image. This photo was part of the Herbert McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life in the area.
