About this Item

Title
Horse parade at the Pan-American Exposition
Summary
There is a paved street in the foreground and on the curbing on the opposite side spectators have gathered to watch a parade. In the background are several large exposition buildings. A band in uniform passes the camera, and following that are many show horses of various types led by their handlers.
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: HORSE PARADE AT THE PAN-AMERICAN EXPOSITION. Unhallowed [code for telegraphic orders] An excellent picture secured on the Esplanade of the Pan-American Exposition, showing the live stock exhibitor's exhibition of prize winners at the Pan-American. Here we show some of the most beautiful horses ever presented, the animals having been gathered from all sections of North America. The exhibition begins with Kentucky thoroughbreds, who prance by the camera and form a decided contrast with the great broad-chested Canadian draft horses. The horses pass our camera in parade form, being led or driven by their owners, and the entire parade is headed by a full band. Class B 140 ft. $16.80
