Memorial Day Parade, Pigeon Cove, circa 1912

I meant to post this on Memorial Day, but better late than never. This is a postcard from the Rockport Photo Bureau showing the Memorial Day parade through the center of Pigeon Cove. Children are running ahead of uniformed men playing brass instruments, followed by the color guard. The old trolley tracks run along the left side of the unpaved street.

This postcard was never mailed but it has a note on the back dated March 1915. I have another copy of this card that was postmarked in 1913. The card has a Rockport Photo Bureau identification number, 1015. Other cards I have with numbers in that range came from roughly 1910-1912.
