Rodeo Parades, same corner,
50 years apart

It was a little soggy in 1949 as the Fortuna Ben Franklin Store cowgirls showed off their finery in front of Bank of America (the old Bank of Portugal) located at Tenth and Main Streets. 

 

Today the building houses a law practice, and the bank moved across the street and down a block. The Royal Order of Moose still uses the same place today. And the participants are still showing off their best.
