Here's more from that series of "teaser" parade photos on the Heights. The background looks right but I can't make the buildings match the map!

The little girl standing on the cars running board looks like a 1939 Chevy 2 door sedan. If there is a business directory from that time period still available, might be able to pin down who distributed/sold steel pipe and then an address.
The large building structure in the background appears to be quite substantial and could it a public building??

The building in the back with the chimney looks like what used to be the floral shop, then a cafe & antique store that Linda Woosley had on Hull Street. (Not sure what is there now). So the guess of it being where XTC is is probably a good one.

This photo seems to be taken from the same location as Friday's, different angle. The building on the left appears in both photos: Armco Drainage & Products Inc, Overhead Irrigation Systems & Steel Pipe.

I vaguely remember the HRHS band doing (1955?) the memorial day parade.

Have to agree with Christie that when I saw the building in back I wondered if it could be Calmettes Florist Shop but it does seem too large; maybe that's due to contrast with small building on right. The museum has a pretty good collection of old telephone books; maybe some include the Armco Irrigation Supply building.
Again, shadows make this look like an afternoon parade. Did that used to be the custom rather than morning parades?
