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."

"In striking contrast to the delicacy [of the Siegel-Sanders Co. float] was the big float of Utterback Brothers, which was labelled The Passing of the Horse, which was literally true. Drawn by six black horses, each led by a restraining groom as black as the animal itself, was the famous Utterback horse in white, harnessed to a basket carriage occupied by some happy, bright faced children."

Utterback Brothers Co. was John G. (president) and James and Edgar (clerks). Located at 46 Broad Street, the company was a carriage and sleigh dealer.
