Fourth of July Parade - 1954

Here are a few photos from the Brookline July 4th Parade in 1954. Spirits were running high as this was the first Independence Day since the signing of the armistice ending the Korean Conflict. The parade was followed by holiday festivities and the annual fireworks display at Moore Park. The photos were contributed by Gary Weslager, who is shown in the top photo holding the American Flag.
