This color postcard features sailors in navy blue uniforms marching down a street during a parade. Spectators and tall buildings line the street on either side. Some of the buildings signs read "Arcade Store" and "Dry Goods". The title along the bottom of the card reads "Sailor's Parade, Tacoma Washington, May 27th". The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides publisher information, as well as, indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement.
