The "Bride of the Sea" float representing a beautiful young maiden riding beneath a floral canopy. The Pasadena Memorial Flagpole (Goodhue Flagpole) is visible behind the float in its original location in the middle of the intersection of Orange Grove and Colorado Boulevard. The float was entered by the city of Santa Monica.
Singing Wood was owned by Mary Elizabeth Altemus Whitney (later Person Tippett), a wealthy socialite and thoroughbred racehorse breeder. Photo is likely related to Singing Wood’s victory in the March 1936 Santa Margarita Invitation at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.
