Description

Float is a large rectangular structure that has the liberty bell sitting atop a square structure draped in streamers that together resemble the American flag. Next to the square structure are two women seated on one side of a table while a man is standing, all three people are looking intently at the table. A sign on the left corner of the float reads "A.D. 1776", while a sign on the mid-right side of the float reads "Birth of Our Flag." Image taken between 4th and 5th streets in front of a small field and empty lot between Hotel Oxnard and residential homes. Homes can be seen in the background behind the field.
