It's the rose queen decorating Patton.

Is that Patton? I was going to say it was a Rose Queen. Darn that Altadena Hiker.

This is the awarding of a prize to a famous Pasadena resident.

argh. I not good at this game.

Petrea said...

It doesn't seem like she should be touching his lapel, does it? And those aren't roses. She's awarding him something, I just don't know what. Perhaps a veteran's award of some sort, or a civic thingy? I think Ben's onto something.

Jean Spitzer said...

It's definitely an award; is it the honorary marshall of the Rose Parade?

Susan C said...

Patton? He doesn't look a thing like George C. Scott.

Cybele said...

It looks like E. O. Nay (then Mayor of Pasadena) being awarded the 1941 Rose Parade Grand Marshall title, by the Rose Queen Sally Stanton. :}

Cybele said...

Oh, and check out the Tournament of Roses Grand Marshall Gallery for the answer...

Well that's a rose queen, and one of the better looking ones -

As far as the woman goes, I have no idea who that is.

Petrea said...

Hehe, anonymous.

Cybele! What a contender!

Susan, I figured if I said it with enough confidence, Ann would just believe me, regardless of proof.
