While waiting for a late zoom meeting, I’ve been watching some old footage of railroad parades.
1927, in Baltimore (a lot of the earlier ones are still in the B&O museum, some were recreations):
1930, in Liverpool (tho the only thing moving was the dancers):
1939, in NY (4:15-8:45):
Late 1940’s, Chicago:
Kinda lame from 1991, in Sacramento:
And a trolley pageant in 2013 in IL:
