Parade Float, Welcome Home Day, Sunbury, Pa., 1919

Parade Float, Welcome Home Day, Sunbury, Pa., 1919
A photo of parades and/or flags for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

The dealer's notation on the back of this real photo postcard says, "Welcome Home Day, Sunbury, Pa., 1919."

The city of Sunbury, Pennsylvania, held a Welcome Home Day for returning World War I soldiers in 1919. This was one of the floats in the parade that was part of the celebration. Take a look at a cropped version of the photo for a better view of Lady Liberty and the other riders on the float.

Sort of sadly, eerily, reminds me of lines from that incredible anti-war song "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda".

"And so now every April I sit on the porch and I watch the parade pass before me"...

"Nobody cheered, they just stood there and stared, then they turned all their faces away".

"and the young people ask what are they marching for? and I ask myself the same question"
