Object Name Print, Photographic
Description Photograph. Sepia-toned gelatin silver photo of a decorated automobile that was part of the Detroit Bi-Centenary Parade. The car body and wheels are covered with artificial flowers. Two men are seated in the front seat of the auto and two women are seated in the back. All are well-dressed and one of the women is holding a parasol. Several bystanders can be seen in the background which appears to be a city park. One man is standing in the street near the front of the auto. (The same man can also be seen in photo 1953.026.018 so it is possible that he was involved with the parade organization or was an assistant to the photographer.) Handwriting on the verso notes "Olds Automobile for Mrs. James H. Donovan and Mrs. Marguerite Beaubien. Also R. E. Olds & Frederick Smith."
