Children on Parade down Main Street


Children on Parade down Main Street


Black and white image of a parade of children down Main Street in Hillsboro. The children at the front of the group ride bicycles, most with bunting and streamers wound through their wheels and hanging from the handles. The children are dressed in everything from regular pants and dresses to several girls in bathing suits. Behind the bicycles are children wearing 'historic' clothing, including western wear. Some children wear uniforms, and some of the boys have on suits. Groups of adults watch the parade, and cars drive down the opposite side of the street. This photo was part of the Herbert McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who also collected other images of daily life in the area.
