Description Photograph. Sepia-toned gelatin silver photo of a parade float that was part of the Detroit Bi-Centenary Parade. The float is mounted on street car trucks and is decorated to show early French explorers who have placed a large wooden cross on land. Three explorers and a horse are standing on the float. A sign at the right side of the float notes "First Cross" along with several additional words that are not legible due to the angle of the sign. The parade is moving along a residential street with several houses and trees being visible in the background. There are about ten spectators who are standing behind the curb.
