Object Name Print, Photographic
Description A sepia-toned photographic print of a parade float from the Cadillaqua celebration held the fourth week of July in 1912. According to a banner suspended from the float's rear, this float is entitled, "Landing of Fr. Cadillac." The float is decorated to look like a canoe floating atop waves. Within a man in a Cadillac costume stands at the bow gripping a blurred flag's pole while five men in stereotypical native American costume hold oars. The float is captured on a tree-lined street, and a porch is visible in the background on the far left. A spectator standing beneath a tree appears to have been scratched out to the float's left as well.
