This 1948 home movie captures scenes from Port Arthur’s Golden Jubilee Parade, held 50 years after its incorporation as a city in 1898. The film opens with a large group of drummers marching down Procter Street trailed by floats, including one with the Golden Jubilee queen and her court, and another with Reddy Kilowatt, a mascot used to promote rural electrification efforts.
