Description TITLE: Days of Old Recalled at Almaden in Admission Day Parade, PUBLISHER: The Evening News, San Jose, CA, Thursday, September 10, 1931
Photo left: Caballeros, senoritas and gay horsemen of all types predominated in the gala parade at New Almaden yesterday in observance of Admission day. Above is shown part of the cavalcade which led the unique parade. All of the citizens of Almaden, from the oldest settlers to the newest arrivals participated and "a pleasant time was had by all."
Photo Left Center: Gibson girls, Indian chieftains, tomahawk-wielding tots and pajama-garbed "Abies" made up a part of the motley crowd which participated in the parade. On the left is Mrs. P. S: Sambuck, next is Mr. Sambuck with their daughter and at the right is James Dunn of San Francisco in the old Almaden idea of the latest mode in lounging "p.j.s."
Photo Right Center: The celebration was sponsored by residents of Twin Creeks and started and ended at that resort above Almaden. Appropriately, a feature of the parade was a pair of attractive twins, pictured above. On the horse is Miss Audrey De Costa and standing beside her is Miss Adrienne De Costa. [Chuck Ferrier, born in 1948, is the son of Adrienne.]
Photo Right: Another view of the parade, with an old-fashioned tallyho in the background. Driver and coachman are dressed in silk hats and frock coats of generations ago. The parade was unique in that there was no audience, as everybody participated In the parade. - All photos by Frank Gordon, Lomar Engraving Service.
