This is the second in a series of square photos I found a while back. Unfortunately, the photographer was so far away from the group of people that it’s very difficult to figure out what exactly they are doing. At first, I thought it was a funeral procession, due to the appearance of the carriage in the right foreground. Later, I noticed that one woman on the left is holding and/or playing a bass drum, so I began to wonder if this was a Salvation Army or church display. Perhaps a funeral in New Orleans? The fellow by the horse and dog appears to be watching whatever is going on. I wish he’d turn around and tell us! Click to enlarge the image, let me know what you think.
UPDATE: Thanks to Intense Guy, I am fairly certain this is a Salvation Army gathering in Norwalk, CT. Iggy found several other images with similar long robes and bonnets supporting this theory. Of course, I don’t know if I will ever have concrete proof, but it’s a fairly good conclusion!
