Prize-winning parade float featuring women in costume representing one of the "Big Five" nations: the United States, England, France, China, and Russia. The float was sponsored by the International Association of Machinists, District Lodge 727, and engineers from the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation. The float was used in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade in 1946. The women in the photograph are from left to right: Sherry Purkiser, Miss Russia; Ronnie Baukand, Miss China; Marjorie Hemmingway, Miss United States; Patricia Kubelka, Miss France; and Jeanne Gilliland, Miss England.

The six other women on the float are, in no order: Josephine Larusso, Leona M. Roberts, Jeanne Hutchens, Mary Henderson, Gloria Crocker, and Dorothy Brown.
