The origin of this photograph is not known. It is a photograph taken of a photograph. Written on the back of the photograph: "Float in Peace Parade". The original photograph of which this is a copy was taken during "Peace Day" celebrations in St. Thomas on July 19, 1919, welcoming home the 91st Battalion and other veterans of the First World War. A different photograph of this float, by Scott Studio, was published in the St. Thomas Times-Journal, July 21, 1919, p. 1, with caption: "The spirit of peace surmounting the globe was splendidly portrayed in the float arranged by St. Thomas Chapter I.O.D.E., which was given the place of honour in the peace pageant. Warren Andrews of the Anderson Company Limited designed this delightful creation and supervised the decorating. The horses were loaned by W.T. Futcher of Talbotville, who also donated his services as driver. The wagon was donated by Thomas McKeown of this city while barrister W.K. Cameron very kindly permitted the ladies to use his rink for rehearsal purposes. Mrs. Bowers was convenor of the float. The little girls who figured in the unit were Jean Andrews, daughter of mr. and Mrs. Warren Andrews, spirit; Grace McIlroy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin McIlroy; Grace Wright, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.N. Wright; Jean Evans, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Evans; Charlotte, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Chamberlain."

History / Biographical
The 91st Overseas Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force was formed on October 25, 1915. The Battalion received its colours in a ceremony at Pinafore Park on May 24, 1916. One month later, on June 25, 1916, the 91st Battalion departed for overseas service. Members of the 91st saw action in all the great and bloody conflicts in which Canadian troops were involved- the Somme, Arras, Passchendaele, Ypres, St. Eloi, Vimy Ridge, Amiens. Five officers and 167 men from other ranks were killed or died in service. Fifty-eight decorations were bestowed on members of the 91st, including four Military Crosses (to Lts. G. Marr, H.C. Cameron, D.A.G. Parsons and E.W. Edwards).
