Photo Archivist's Selection of the Month: June 2002
Memorial Day Parade 1919
The Stamford Historical Society greatfully acknowledges the donation of copy prints of four Memorial
Day photos from 1919 by Leo Houle and consider them a fitting subject for this
month. The only person we can identify is a Scofield, holding the reigns
in the first image below.
Although the third image has the year 1918 on a banner, the parade is clearly
that of 1919. The group behind that banner is presumably made up of medical
field staff from WWI.
The stores in the background on Main Street are:
George J. Hurlbutt & Son, Haberdashers,
Doty & MacCarter, Shoe Dealers
