Authors: Unknown
Keywords: Sanitation Worker

Issue Date: 17-Oct-2007
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.
