Description Photograph. Sepia-toned gelatin silver photo of a parade float that was part of the Detroit Bi-Centenary Parade. The float consists of a wagon that is decorated with an eagle and shield, two carved heads, floral garlands, and fleurs des lis. Six women, dressed in long white gowns and floral garlands, are seated in the wagon which is being drawn by four horses. The horses are covered with long white capes and garland, and each horse also wears a single feathery plume. Four men, dressed in colonial attire, are standing near the horses. A sign on the side of the wagon advertises "Freeman Delamater & Co." The parade is moving along a residential street and several houses are visible in the background, but the street name is not known.
