Object Name Negative, Film
Description Color negative taken of a crowd gathered on the parade grounds of Fort Wayne, likely to watch the Windsor–Detroit International Freedom Festival fireworks display, as taken from the north end of the hill at the west side of the field. In the foreground a baby leans on a red cooler between two adults. Other groups of spectators seated on blankets or in lawn chairs spot the grounds. A bank of portable toilets have been installed along the path at the foot of the hill. A stage has been set up along the riverfront. A freighter is visible on the Detroit River in the background. The film was previously housed in a GK Photographics envelope, with "AAA 4-20-88, Fort Wayne," handwritten on it.
