Description Photograph. A mounted sepia-toned gelatin silver print of a float on an unidentified street that was part of the Floral Parade celebrating Detroit's bicentennial, held July 26, 1901. The float is mounted on streetcar trucks and decorated to depict a scene from Detroit's history. An illuminated sign at the right end of the float notes "Bloody Run." A bridge sits at the center of the float. On one side are five men in stereotypical Native American costumes; on the other are three men in stereotypical British colonial military costumes. Visible on the far right is a sign that reads "Wayne's Army in Possession." A police officer stands to the right of the float. In the background are onlookers and houses.
