This flashback is from August 4th, 1986. As the Shriners’ Parade passed through the 600 block of Cumberland Street, resident Julia Filion couldn’t pass up the opportunity to snap a few photos.

It seems that the elephants were too much to resist. Having taken over Hussey Electric, Westburne occupied that building prior to Tackaberry.
