Truckload of Link Belt Employees in the Parade

By W. H. Bass Photo Company


Link Belt employees filled a truck and joined the parade.When peace was officially announced Governor Goodrich called on everyone who could to celebrate. The spirit of the city became carnival like. Trains and interurbans stopped, and factories and shops closed as everyone wanted to get downtown to celebrate. On and around Monument Circle people marched, sang, and shouted. Every noisemaking device possible was used including horns, bells, skillets, fire engines, cymbals, and cans. The celebration continued well into the night, eventually halted by fatigue
