Lorain's Big G.A.R. Parade - June 21, 1911

The highlight of the Encampment Week was the big parade on June 21, 1911 - one hundred years ago today. (A vintage postcard of the parade from Ebay is shown above.) 

And here's the front page of The Lorain Times-Herald on the following day describing the big event. (Give it a click so you can read it.) Apparently almost 80,000 people watched the parade – making it postcard-worthy I guess.

And here's the continuation of the parade article.

I will feel even prouder going down Broadway. Liked the Malted Milk ad too. Didnot know it came thus.
