Possibly the earliest known footage of Houston, this film features scenes from a Shriners parade in 1915. Visible are a number of segments of the parade, including a marching band, horse drawn carriages, an automobile, and even a procession of elephants. Transferred from the original negative, this film is in quite poor condition and shows the signs of nitrate deterioration.
