St. Patrick's Parade 1950s


Here are two photos of the S, Marks Paint Co. float that participated in the St. Patrick's Parade in the 1950s.  The company was located at the corner of Lyman & Maple Streets for many years, up until the 1990s. The float is pictured on Essex Street in the top photo, and around the corner on Pine Street in the bottom photo.

City officials march in the St. Patrick's Parade in the 1950s.  The parade is heading east on Lyman Street in front of the Mater Dolorosa Church. Up until the late 1960s, the parade route would head north down Chestnut Street from Appleton, take a turn east on Lyman, then south onto High Street. 

The building in the upper left was the Job Block which is now the parking lot across from Kay's Bakery.  This picture was taken from, you guessed it,  the S. Marks Paint Co. building.  (All photos courtesy of the Seminole Bailey Archive)
