Ink drawing on paper laid on board, measuring 14" by 15", and 21 1/2" by 22 1/2" as simply framed, depicting the famous and traditional Mummers Day parade held annually in November in Philadelphia. The work is signed with initials "F B" at lower right, and there is an old label from the N.W. Ayer advertising agency affixed to the reverse, with the notation of a delivery date of November 25, 1952. "Philadelphia Co." is also written on the label, and there is a possible name at upper edge of label which looks like Pavloff, Frank or something like that but that is a guess, and it wouldn't correspond with initials on the front. Attempts to date to identify the artist have not been successful. The work should find a home with anyone who is a Philly native, or anyone who loves the city, its history, and traditions. Condition is excellent.
