Christmas Parade 1948 or 49 Jackson Ms

A Christmas Parade in downtown Jackson Mississippi in either 1948 or 1949. The location is the corner of North State Street and Capitol Street. Buildings in the footage include Hemphill Drugs, Gandys Steaks, The War Memorial Building and the Old State Capitol Building. Footage was shot by my father, Clyde Maxwell. Many years later my mother and father re-shot the footage on an 8 mm camcorder and added the narration. The background noise is daddy's 16 mm film projector.
