Photograph of a throng of people on Colorado Street looking west from Los Robles Avenue after the Tournament of Roses Parade, Pasadena, ca.1925. The American Flag, banners for the American Legion and other flags hang from the cable car wires that make a net above the street. Below, the road is completely obscured by vast waves of pedestrians crammed shoulder-to-shoulder. In the center foreground, a young boy looks towards the viewer, surrounded by a corona of unoccupied space. Farther right, a young girl in a dress and hat holds a similar position. To the far left, one- to two-story commercial buildings can be seen. In the distance, the Hotel Maryland is also visible. Legible signs from left to right include: "[...] Hawkins. Dentist", and "Drugs".
