Much of Columbus came out the morning of Sept. 1, 1891, to watch or participate in the Labor Day Parade. Organized labor groups helped make the procession one of the biggest in Columbus up to that time. The parade began at 9 a.m. and took 1 hour, 40 minutes to pass. This view on South High Street near Town Street shows the parade moving in both directions. Many stores along the route closed for the day but not before being decorating with flags and bunting.
