Description
Photograph of a horse-pulled float at the Pasadena Tournament of Roses celebration, ca.1906. A low to the ground carriage covered in flowers stands on a dirt road to the right of center while a woman wearing a lightly colored formal dress and a man in a darkly colored suit sit inside. The man holds the reigns as well as what seems to be a long whip in his hand. The two small horses that pull the carriage stand to the left while a woman on a bicycle is visible in the background. A large house is visible at left while the manicured lawns and neat sidewalks of a residential street are visible in the background.
