The record for this photo has no information – so if you know anything about the people in the photo and/or what they were doing let us know!

It is a neat, and fairly clear photo, of a number of men that appear to be firefighters and policemen among others transporting slated items via horse drawn cart.

See the marching band near the driver of the horse drawn cart in the foreground, I wonder if perhaps they’d been in a parade…

Have a great weekend!
