Description
Photograph of the Chamber of Commerce Float for Los Angeles' La Fiesta Parade, ca.1901. Six white horses pull the flower-decorated coach of the float, which contains a group of women dressed in white, who carry parasols. The initials "C of C" are blazoned on the side. A man with a gray handlebar moustache acts as the coachman. Spectators can be seen along the sidewalk in the background in front of clapboard-sided houses and trees. Streetcar rails and horse dung are visible in the paved road. A sign is partially visible in the right background.
