This old mailer is a vintage souvenir of the beautiful Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena California. The red, black and white cover features a damsel reaching over the balcony rail to hand a red rose to an armored knight on a white steed. Inside is a foldout with sixteen black and white photos of the Rose parade. Each picture features a float with reference to the entrants information including the prize they were awarded. The "Theme Prize" winner was called June Bride and a "Special Prize" was given to the State of Washington float named Romance of Sports which features a football player in the front. The continuous sheet of photos is folded into the packet that would have been addressed, stamped with a 2c stamp and mailed.
