This photograph is not the best, but so very interesting! It was included in a box of photographs auctioned at Saginaw, Michigan that I purchased.
The dapple gray horses are beautiful, and the driver in his top hat and black suit is very dapper. Notice the wheels on the wagon, very wide. I count nine ladies clad in white dresses, each wearing a dark ribbon. Are they part of a club or group? Was this a float in a parade?
And the most surprising aspect is the boat on the wagon bed. You can see the sail (although it does blend in with the ladies’ dresses) and some of the letters of the name of the boat.
How I wish I knew the occasion!
