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."

"The American beauty float was a fine affair, with a vast bowl of this favorite rose, from which arose a real American Beauty of flesh and blood. Miss Margaret Cullinanl representing the store of James A. Robinson & Co."

The 1912 Bangor city directory lists the owners of James A. Robinson & Co. at 36 Hammond Street as the aforemention James and Perley T. Black. The company were "manufacturers, jobbers, and retailers of clothing, boots, shoes and furnishings, custom tailors, etc." and were "agents for Sorosis, Stetson, and Kum Bak Shoes for Men and Women and Gold Seal Rubbers."
