|Abstract: ||A scan of a black and white photograph of a Sanitation Department parade float.|
|Description: ||Source: Robin Nagle.
An 8" x 10" black and white photograph found grouped with other photographs in a sleeve titled "Parades & Cleanup."
Photographer is unknown and there is no date listed. Robin Nagle believes the photo was likely taken circa World War II.
Float reads "Our Objective - A Clean City Department of Sanitation." The parade appears to be ticker-tape parade, but the purpose of the parade is unknown.
Unidentified object on top of the float; readable words: "Disease," "Dirt," and "Dust."
There appear to be four men standing on the float - three are dressed in civilian clothing (suits or a shirt and slacks) and one appears to be in uniform. The float is passing by a grandstand full of men and women who appear to be somewhat formally dressed.|
