Description Photograph. Sepia-toned gelatin silver photo of a parade float that was part of the Detroit Bi-Centenary Parade. The float consists of a wagon that is being drawn by two horses and has been decorated with two large art murals. (Presumably, there are similar murals on the opposite side.) There is an opening between the two murals where two men can be seen holding a chess board. Also, two men are standing at the front of the wagon to drive the horses. A sign at the top of the float notes "Vinton Company, Painters and Decorators." The parade is moving along a residential street and several houses and an apartment building are visible in the background. Three spectators are also visible in the distance behind the float.
