Pioneer Parade Photograph

Identifier: P-235

News photograph dated 8-23-38. Writing on photograph: “Alley Oop and Foozy ride again. And Dinny the Dinosaur is the steed for the Mormons when they celebrate in carnival style at Ogden, Utah. The NEA comic characters come to life each summer as processions and parades are staged in Utah, when Mormondom marks harvest time. Here are shades of the past—the dinosaur age, even oo-la on Washington Boulevard, Ogden, as the Mormons turn back pages of history and carnival spirit reigns.”

Dates: 1938
