Description 5 photos. c 1937 Marineers' Pageant Kids Parade.

fic.572.001 - A piece of paper is attached on the right shoulder of each kid. All of the kids are riding bicycles. The two numbers from the pieces of papers that can be seen at the angle the photographer shot the photo are "41" (the young boy in the cowboy outfit at the far left side of the photo) and "35" (the young girl wearing a tutu outfit in the middle of the photo). A young girl (also wearing a tutu outfit) who is between the cowboy and "35" tutu girl is facing towards the crowd on the sidewalk, so the number on her shoulder is difficult to read. In front of the tutu girls is a kid in a clown outfit, then a kid wearing a bonnet and white outfit pushing a baby carriage. A dog is standing near the clown and bonnet kid. There are three more kids riding bikes in the far right side of the photo, but it is difficult to depict the outfits they are wearing. A crowd of people are standing in the background along the sidewalk around the cars in front of the stores. Marineers Pageant banners are hanging from each of the buildings. The white building has an American flag hanging near its rooftop. It also has a sign below a Marineers Pageant banner; its first word reads "Kimsey's." "Kids Parade" is written on the backside of the photo.

fic.572.002 - There are two kids riding tricycles along the street. They are wearing Hispanic influenced flared outfits. A crowd of people are standing in the background along the sidewalk around the cars in front of the stores. Marineers Pageant banners are hanging from each of the buildings. "Dentist" in white letters is posted on a window on the second floor (third from the end that is located near a white building) of the dark building that can be seen in the middle of the photo. Near the top right corner of the photo is someone's left hand aiming towards the direction where the two kids are riding. A ring is located on the ring finger of the hand. On the other side of the photo, without the image, "2nd prize Kids parade Boy on left is son of one of our firemen" is handwritten in pencil.

fic.572.003 - Five individuals walking along the street in single file wearing outfits. From left to right: The female is wearing a dark colored outfit, hat, and trench coat. She is holding onto a white sign that reads, "Pets." The girl in front of her is wearing a white outfit, with white gloves, and is carrying a bouquet of flowers. The woman in front of her is wearing a Hawaiian grass skirt, a flower in her hair, no shoes, and material wrapped around her ankles and wrists. Attached to her hip she is wearing a piece of paper that reads "59." In front of her are two kids with outfits that have them covered from head to toe. Attached to the shoulder of the child closest to the person who took the photo is a piece of paper that reads "43." In front of the two kids is a girl who is wearing an outfit that has the skirt from her waist all the way to her feet puffed out dramatically. She is wearing white gloves and a short sleeved shirt, and a hat with a rim surrounded by flowers. On the puffed area of her skirt is a piece of paper attached that reads "50." A crowd of people are standing in the background along the sidewalk around the cars in front of the stores. On the other side of the photo, without the image, "Kids Parade" is handwritten in pencil.

fic.572.004 - In the middle of the photo is a float. Sitting on a throne towards the back of the float is a young blonde haired girl wearing a white outfit. Located from where the girl is sitting to the sign at the opposite end of the float, there are four lumps shaped like logs evenly separated from each other. The sign at the end of the float reads, "Queen Susan." At each corner of the float there is an individual holding onto a long rope as they walk on the street. Three of the individuals appear to be men topless wearing pants cut in strings from the knee down to their ankles. A crowd of people are standing in the background along the sidewalk around the cars in front of the buildings. Peoples National Bank is one of the buildings located on the corner of the street behind the crowd. On the other side of the photo, without the image, "Queen Susan Kids Parade" is handwritten in pencil.

fic.572.005 - There are four rows of young boys in uniform marching in step along the street. There is one boy in uniform following behind that group. The boys in the first row are wearing white hats. The rest of the group is wearing dark hats. Their uniform consists of dark clothing with a light colored sash worn across their chest. A crowd of people are standing in the background along the sidewalk around the cars in front of the buildings. Peoples National Bank is one of the buildings located on the corner of the street behind the crowd. On the other side of the photo, without the image, "School Boy Patrol" is handwritten in pencil.
