|The pictures below show larger views of all (3) Different Small Old Red Lodge Montana Western Parade Photographs in this lot. The first image shows all three photos and the other images are a little closer view of all three that are included here. These black & white snapshot photographs are not dated but they are believed to be from the 1940s.|
These are of a parade of Cowboys on horseback. We are not sure what the event was but there are many banners and (48 star) American flags that can be seen. It may be Independence Day or for a Fourth of July Rodeo because there is a Rodeo sign with ''July 4 - 5 - 6'' dates on a covered wagon.
The first photo has two men or Cowboys on horses. Behind them are old automobiles and businesses with awnings. The signs that can be read are as follows:
SOUVENIRS - CURIOS - POST CARDS
(some that are partial or hard to read)
The second photo pictures a long line or parade of Cowboys on horses. There are old automobiles and businesses on both sides of the downtown street. Some of the signs read as follows:
NICK'S NITE CLUB
?????? PLUMBING AND HEATING CO.
(many that are partial or hard to read)
The third and final photo in this lot has a covered wagon full of people being pulled by a team of horses. On the wagon is a rodeo advertising sign. There are bars or saloons with awnings, banners, and signs. Some of the signs read as follows:
RED LODGE RODEO JULY 4 - 5 - 6
SENATE BEER PARLOR
These small old photographs each measure 3-1/2'' x 2-1/2''. They appear to be in near mint or mint condition as pictured.
