Description Photograph. Sepia-toned gelatin silver photo of a parade float that was part of the Detroit Bi-Centenary Parade, in the intersection of Miami Avenue and Wilcox Street. The float consists of a wagon that is being drawn by four horses and decorated as a log cabin trading post. Five figures are standing on the float in front of the trading post with one dressed in colonial attire and the other four dressed as Indians. A sign across the top of the trading post notes "Dry Goods; 1701 - Burnham, Stoepel & Co." Three men are standing beside the horses in the street. A small crowd of spectators can be seen on the right side of the photo. The "Index Printing Co." building is visible in the background of the photo.
