Different photographs of the parade taken on the same occasion appear with the article, “County Fair Fiesta Recalls Settling of Pomona Valley,” Los Angeles Times, 21 Sept. 1936: 1, 7, 20.
The historical pageant, La Fiesta de la Rancho San Jose, at the Los Angeles County Fair celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of the first Spanish settlers, Don Ygnacio Palomares and Don Arcardo Vejar to the Pomona Valley.
A horse-drawn parade float surrounded by flowers features a balcony scene with a man and women facing three dancers and two guitar players next to a well. The scene most likely depicts the love story of Concepcion Arguello.
