Notations on the album page where this photograph is found state, "The park where we watched the Houlton ball team beat I.F." and "The KKK at Island Falls July 12, 1924."

The Houlton Times of July 16, states: "The Orangemen's celebration which has been looked forward to with so much interest for several weeks was most successful in every way....There were the most Orangemen ever seen here in a parade, many different lodges being represented. The Orangemen were followed by about one hundred members of the Klu Klux Klan from different towns, and as they appeared in their white robes and masks they were greeted with much enthusiasm all along the line of march..... Two ball games were played between Island Falls and Houlton both were won by the latter team."

In this photo the Klan is seen marching across the ballfield.
