Circa 1939, Parade view at Baker’s Motor Market at 2328 Chester Avenue, Bakersfield, California. Despite close inspection, the graphics on the costume are not easily readable. The emblem on the front does not appear to be the seal of the city nor of Kern County but the word at the bottom appears to be “CALIFORNIA.” The lettering on the side might be “ANY BOOK YOU NEED” and possibly “BY ANNE [unreadable]” with “COUNTY LIBRARY” at the bottom.
