You may recognize this spot, as the E.L. Smith house is still at 6th and State Street. In fact, with the urban renewal project on State Street we even have a dirt road here for the first time in 100 years.
The Hood River Marching Band not only has to march up hill, they seem to be following the horses. One of the band members is Robert (Bert) Kent. They are being followed by some gentlemen from the GAR, circa 1910.
Our dirt roads should be covered with asphalt next week, but these folks had to wait five years or so for the dust and mud to subside.

That house was later the Anderson Funeral Home, wasn't it?
There is a little boy, like in so many photos.

Looks like somebody is having trouble finding his music.
What does the one gentleman have his foot resting on?
Any idea where the parade will end? It is interesting that many of these parade photos took place on State St. and not Oak St.

Most prades start with a flag - perhaps this is the start of the line up off of Oak-
Horse droppings prevail ...
