It’s time for another Sepia Saturday post. This week’s prompt had me searching Flickr Commons for photos of parades way back when.

This week’s prompt inspired me to look for vintage Macy’s Thanksgiving’s Day Parade photos. The parade began in 1924 and features lots of huge balloons of popular characters. Here’s some from the 1930’s.
