Family Slides: 1959 Mummers Parade.

This is the first of a series: The Family Slides from 1959 until the 1970's

My father shot 35 mm slides from about 1959 until the 1970s and some will be featured here.

This (as near as I can tell) is the Quaker City String Band from the 1959 Philadelphia Mummers parade. I'm guessing the that parade took place on Saturday the 3rd of January since the first was rainy and this appears to be the same band as here.

It is taken in front of St Agnes hospital in South Philadelphia.
