Easter Parade New York City 1959. A mixture of religion, culture and fashion this yearly event took place around 5th Avenue and was all about American prosperity. You can read more about it here. I like the ironies of the street sign ‘Public Shelter Capacity 300’! Apparently at its height (1947 and ten years earlier than this image), the parade drew 1 million people. They all wore their best clothes and hats.
This slide all the way from 1959 was in incredibly good condition, thanks to Kodachrome.
