Pasadena California 1915 Tournament of Roses parade Souvenir book b&w photosBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
(California in early 20th century- tourism- parades).
Pasadena Daily News - Tournament of the Roses Edition.
Published 1915 by News Printing Company, Pasadena, CA.
pp. 68 counting pictorial wrappers. Photographs throughout. Advertising.
Profusion of fascinating early b&w photos throughout, including many different parade floats, crowd scenes, specific identified people, public buildings, pages of advertising (some illustrated), etc. informational souvenir magazine format. Clearly intended for sale during the parade season as a permanent keepsake, filled with promotional information including extensive local advertising, quite a visual record of the city in 1915.
Note- magazine is rather noticeably damp stained throughout to inner portion of text block. While noticeable, it is still a pleasure to look through. Nice item, likely quite scarce.
Book remains attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina, short closed tear at bottom of cover, overall antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
Book Measures c. 11" H x 8" W.
