About this Item

Title
Procession of floats
Summary
"Taken at San Francisco, Cal., at the Golden Jubilee. In the foreground are seen crowds of people, all being very close to the camera. The first float is drawn by four white horses and is at least twenty feet long. It carries a full load of little school girls, who sit along its full length facing the sides of the street. This is followed by a corps of firemen, and they in turn by a unique float drawn by six mules. Particular attention is drawn to the actions of a small boy who stands very close to the camera and who partially obstructs the view. He was requested by the photographer to leave his position, and the startled look and hasty disappearance lends a humorous incident. Sharp and clear"--Edison films catalog.
