Description

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."

"Snow & Nealley's splendid display of mill and lumbering supplies on an auto truck attracted a great deal of attention and was the largest of the auto floats. It was well arranged and the goods that it was designed to display were shown to the best advantage. A huge hawser, running over two large wooden pulleys was one of the interesting features of this float."

Snow & Nealley Co. sold mill and lumbering supplies at 104 Broad Street. William P. Nealley was secretary of the company (as well as treasurer of the Hincks Coal Co.). Snow is not identified in the 1912 Bangor city directory.
