Remember when

This 4th of July Parade on Lincoln Way in La Porte, circa 1940, was going east instead of west. Unlike today, cars were parked along the route and spectators watched from the street. A Schafer’s Laundry truck is in the parade. Businesses in view include Kinney Shoes, Woolworth’s, Sears, Fox Theatre, Phoenix Theatre, La Porte Theatre, and the California Fruit Store.
