1918 Tacoma Labor Day parade

This truck, adorned with large American flags, was believed to have participated in the 1918 Tacoma Labor Day parade. Signs urged people to buy US savings stamps to support the war. 18,000 workmen carried American flags, allied and union banners in what organizers believed was the largest Labor Day parade to date.
