These photos are fading taken pre-digital era. While there are no Swans dancing, there are plenty of horses, clowns, Scots,buckskin riders and others of the wild west parade shots we took from our bleacher seats. I found the old program too and a poster. Sadly the list of parade participants is faded and did not scan but I notice it was the centennial celebration for Calgary that year.
I share some of our July 7, 1975 Calgary Stampede parade as we watched from our bleacher seats across the street from a multi story parking garage where folks hung from the sides to watch. I noticed I did not caption the photos, so now 39 years later, I try.
