Vintage Macy Thanksgiving Parade

Most of these photographs are from the 1930s and 40s.  I love the old balloons.  The parade did not run during the peak of World War II.  The balloons have also not been allowed when winds are high.   A few of the photographs may be before the 1930s and 40s and some are obviously after that.
Mayor Bloomberg?


Eddie Cantor
That is just awesome...is it evolving with those arm fins?
Or is it deflating, making fins seem like arms?


This is supposed to be a dragon, but it is fabulous cat or anything you want...




I can see how clowns freak some people out...




No hitchhiking!







Turkeys can fly!

  3. Outstanding collection, EBL.
    I'd love to know what that insect/rodent/saurian mutant at #2 is supposed to be.

    1. I think it is a "dragon" but I agree it is some sort of hybrid mutant thing. Thanks.
