This old mailer is not only a promotional souvenir of the beautiful Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade but also has a reminder of the Tenth Olympiad which was to be held months later. The 1932 Summer Olympics, or the Games of the Xth Olympiad were the first Olympic games held in Los Angeles. The sharp red, black and white packet cover has the influence of the deco period and incorporates information about the Olympics. 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. It would appear that the theme of the parade was countries of the world, probably in honor of the up coming Olympics. The continuous sheet of photos is folded into the packet that would have been addressed, stamped and mailed.
Folded, the old mailer measures about 6 3/8” by 4 3/8" Each photo page measures about 6 1/8” by 4” with the photo portion being about 5 ¼” by 3 1/8”. Overall it is in very good condition with minimal wear and creases and no tears. It was never addressed or stamped for mailing
