Wonderful January 1940 Tournament of Roses/ Rose Parade/ Rose Bowl Souvenir book out of Pasadena, California. This beautiful soft cover book contains forty pages of flowered covered parade floats, information on the college football game (USC vs. Tennessee) and many Old Hollywood/ Los Angeles centric advertisements of the day. There are nine colored pages in the front of the book, while the rest is printed in black and white. The Parade pictures include the Queen and Her Court, the equestrian unit and Charlie McCarthy and Edgar Bergen who were the Grand Marshals of the year. This is an incredible time capsule for this famous event, still happening today!
The condition of this piece is overall good. The front and back covers have separated in a solid piece from the spine and there is some foxing around the edges. Inside, the pages are clear, clean and untorn.
