Photograph article dated November 23, 1963 partially reads, "Right now, in an unheated tent that's larger than a football field and colder than Santa Claus' home town, hundreds of workers are creating the 40 beautiful floats for this 16th in a series of increasingly successful parades... In the photo of Louis Tarr, of the First Baptist Church of Van Nuys, you see a hint of the rich brocades and silks, and the make-up, created for the 400 Biblical characters in the parade." Pictured is Mr. Tarr.
