Description

On June 24, 1902, Waterville held a parade to wrap up the festivities of the centennial celebration. The floats included W. B. Arnold's hardware and plumbing store, which is pictured here in the center of the photo. L. H. Soper had a float as well. He, according to the 1902 Centennial History of Waterville, "put in a beautiful float in yellow and white on which rode nine girls. The sides and ends of the float formed open oval panels and the effect was charming."
