Today we have another series of slides from the O.W. Sjogren collection. This time we have the floats from the 1958 Tournament of Roses Parade that took place on January 1, 1958. The theme for the parade was "Daydream in Flowers." There are 38 images featuring a wide variety of floats including Ohio State University, University of Oregon, Hamm's Beer, Peter Pan, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and many more.
