From the Wednesday, June 19, 1912 Bangor Daily Commercial newspaper:

"The biggest carnival parade ever seen in Bangor, probably the longest parade of any sort ever seen here, passed through the city Tuesday. It was a magnificent aggregation of artistic arrangement of decorative material, beautiful women and children and fine rigs.

From where the processions rear rested far down on the Hampden road to the food of Exchange Street, there was almost a continuous line of floats, wagons, carriages, and fire apparatus, the entire horse drawn equipment of the Bangor Fire Department being in parade.

As the procession passed along the music of the two bands, the various floats were loudly applauded as now one, then another, party of friends discovered familiar faces or firm names on the floats."

"One of the strikingly attractive exhibits was the green teakettle, representing the P.H. Vose Co. The kettle was covered with evergreen, with the name Vose made of daisies, enclosed in a daisy border. Out of the spout jetted real steam and it received many compliments."

The P.H. Vose Co. was located at 55-59 Main Street in Bangor, Maine. Prescott H. Vose was company owner and treasurer. The company specialized in crockery, glassware, and kitchen furnishings.

Zooming in on photograph reveals the building in the background is the Second Baptist Church, now known as Columbia Street Baptist Church at 63 Columbia Street.
