Description
Access to this collection is generously supported by Arcadia funds.
The theme of the 1935 forty-sixth annual Rose Parade was "Golden Legends."
The float features Father Time, Donald Simpson, leaning on his scythe standing in front of a floral hour glass, with Bobby Shields personifying Happy New Year, seated nearby. The float was entered by the Pasadena Junior Chamber of Commerce. View facing east towards along the Rose Parade route on West Colorado Blvd. probably between St. John Avenue and Pasadena Avenue (which became a freeway underpass) with the tall Orth Storage building (at 238 W. Colorado Blvd.) visible on the right.
