Year? possibly early 1930's. Note Henderson Drug building occupant now Motor Supply; Car Parts & Accessories. Lyric theatre further north in view. It was one of Odessa's early movie theatres. Shadows indicate it was mid morning; town folks no doubt waiting for parade to begin.
This anniversary parade is one possibility. Photograph was not documented for the year. Another possible parade with the float in front of the court house. You can see the trees in front of the Court House; are not as tall as I had imagined.
Lots of trees are visible further North. These are probably the cotton wood trees that were on the court house lawn that the town folks used to picnic among on weekends.
