This July 4, 1910, photograph shows horse-drawn fire engines parading along K Street, between Fourth and Fifth Streets. 30,000 Sacramentans witnessed the Independence Day parade which featured horses. Several awards were given for the fittest and best-groomed horses, representing several public and private institutions, including, of note, bottle wagons, ice dealers, breweries, police wagons, and storage and moving vans. Prizes were given to the following firefighting units: First Prize, Engine Number 2; Second Prize, Engine Number 1; Third Prize, Truck Number 1; and Honorable Mention, Hose Wagon Number 2. Also in the photo are several storefronts including the Weinstock, Lubin and Company building at 400 through 418 K Street and the Bijou Theatre at 420 K Street.
