Photos – The pageant


At the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue, on the plaza of the U.S. Treasury building, the much anticipated pageant began at the same time as the parade. The overall pageant had been designed by Hazel MacKaye, and Florence Fleming Noyes arranged the dances for the allegory. The parade program summarized the pageant narrative this way:

Columbia, hearing the approach of the Procession, summons to her side Justice, Charity, Liberty, Peace and Hope, to review with her this “new crusade” of women. When these are assembled, Columbia takes her place as leader and guardian of them all, and, in a final tableau, they stand together and review the oncoming Procession.
