Photo caption accompanying published photos: "TWIN CITY LABOR HOLDS PARADE - Celebrating labor's big day, Twin City labor organizations yesterday held their annual Labor Day parade with floats, bands, marches, decorated bicycles, and clowns parading the length of King St. from Waterloo to Kitchener City Hall. Thousands lined the street to witness the procession. The Dominion Rubber Co. float, left [missing from envelope, no suitable substitute], depicting better products through research, was adjudged the best in the parade. Oscar Busch, center [missing from envelope, no suitable substitute], a clown with a live goose, brought many a laugh from the crowd as he and the bird mingled with spectators. The best combination union and company entry was that of the Goodrich Local 73 with a western float, shown at right [47-575_001].
