This photograph is taken in Chicago, the United States, 29 years ago. It is remembered that the place was as Michigan Avenue facing Grant Park. Seemingly, it was Labor Day and the parade of the celebration was performed in the main street in the city on that day. It is a worker's festival, workers had a placard per industrial exception, and they were marching through in the city. There were some persons who walk and march, and the group which is on the car and which marches was. Labor Day (Labor Day) is the mind of "worker's day", in the United States of America, is one of the public holidays of the federal government, and is determined as first Monday in September. It came out in New York City that Labor Day was celebrated by the beginning in the U.S. on September 5, 1882. That outline is explained that how to celebrate Labor Day shows the public "the strength and union soul of men of the same trade and a labor union" by performing a parade, and performs the festival of a worker and its family in the proposal of the beginning of this public holiday. This became a standard form of Labor Day as it is. For many Americans, Labor Day symbolizes the end of summer traditionally. It is considered in many cases that Labor Day is a day of rest and a parade. Although neither a speech nor a political heavy-handed display is conspicuous like the May Day of other countries, at the event which a labor union organizes, a political theme may be hung up or a candidate may appear in the year of an election.

the thumbnail was a real eyecatcher. "MONDALE FOR PRESIDENT".
Thanks for the useful note, and thanks for posting this unique photo. There are some older photos on TrekEarth, but hardly any of these is a somehow historic document like this one.
And thanks for reminding us that Mondale was once running for president :-)

This is an interesting photo, maybe above all important as a historical document, Noone can doubt the age of this picture. Many TE members probably don't remember Walter Mondale, maybe they haven't even heard of him.
