Description Black-and-white negative photo of the 1955 Hoboken Centennial Parade, Washington St., Hoboken, March 1955.

The view is looking northeast. The majorettes preceding a band are marching south in the 200 block of Washington Street. In the background is the storefront of City Paint and Hardware which was then located at 227 Washington St.; Villa Roma Restaurant, 223 Washington which apparently was out-of-business or no longer located there.
