Last year the topic of Easter Parades came up.
In the 1950’s,most people went to church on Sunday. People dressed up for Easter Sunday. Most got a new outfit, shoes or hat.
The Easter Parade in Gloucester was on Easter Sunday afternoon along the Boulevard.
The attached picture is from 1952. We had just moved into my grandmother’s home at 22 Mansfield St.
Our family walked down to the Boulevard and Bill Cafasso took our picture and it was in the Gloucester Daily Times.
The information on the back of the photo says:
