Black and white photograph of a patriotic parade coming down First Street in Sanford, Florida. The parade consists of automobiles, some of which have people seated in them and are decorated with American flags. Some vehicles are parked along the curb of the street and people are watching the parade from the inside them. On the sidewalks at the right of the image is a small group of African American men, women, and children, who are watching the parade. The building second from the left of the image is the Hotchkiss Building (built 1887). At the right of the image is a building advertising "Woodruff and Watson, Clothing and Shoes", as well as a painted advertisement for "Wrigley's Spearmint Pepsin Gum." The photograph was made from a glass plate negative which no longer exists.
