Description Photograph. Mounted sepia-toned gelatin sliver print of a parade float that was part of the Floral Parade celebrating Detroit's bicentennial, held July 26, 1901. The float is mounted on a streetcar truck and decorated with foliage, a campfire made of light bulbs, a tepee, and a snowshoe suspended from three poles. A sign at the right end of the float notes "Pontiac's Conspiracy." The parade is moving along a residential street and two wood frame houses can be seen in the background, but the street name is not known. Two women and two young girls are visible in the background on the right. Partially visible on the far right is a man releasing the preceding float's trolley pole from the overhead wire.
