The D. Earl Comb Christmas parade. Back in the early 30's Mr. Comb ran this parade throughout the Midwest and the southeastern United States.
He bought the parade from Albert H. Thacher for $1,800 - including all animals, costumes and props.
The pictures are from various locations. I've only been able to pinpoint two - one at a very specific corner in Atlanta and the other in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. My favorites are of the parade clowns. I've got a Flickr group
that contains all the pictures, stationery and contract for this. I've still got some documents I haven't scanned in yet (like the instructions to running a parade), but hopefully will sometime soon. | Click image for Comments.
