Sagebrush Symphony Orchestra on Parade

Photographic postcard by Rufus W. Heck showing the Sagebrush Orchestra parade float travelling down Broadway Street in front of Burns Hotel during the annual Fourth of July parade. The float consists of a group of children with musical instruments atop a giant violin replica which is laid across a platform covered by a banner displaying a musical score and the words "Tis The Star Spangeled Banner, Oh Long May It Wave". The float is pulled by four white horses, each decorated with colorful blankets across their backs.
