Object Name Print, Photographic
Description Photograph. Sepia-toned gelatin silver photo of a decorated horse drawn cart that was part of the Detroit Bi-Centenary Parade. The cart body and wheels are covered with artificial flowers. A woman is seated in the driver's seat and a man is seated in back. Both are well-dressed and the woman is holding a buggy whip. The cart is moving along a residential street and two large houses can be seen in the background, but the street name is not known. A man is standing in the street near the horse. (The same man can also be seen in photo 1953.026.007 so it is possible that he was involved with the parade organization or was an assistant to the photographer.) Handwriting on the verso notes "Mrs. Bertram C. Whitney."
