    Illuminated floats in the Cotton Carnival in Memphis.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CARNIVAL "KING COTTON" RULES MEMPHIS".

    Memphis, Tennessee, United States of America.

    Various shots of illuminated carnival floats in the 'Cotton Carnival'. Businessman Jack Hayes is named King Cotton for the day, with Vassar (sp?) student Elizabeth Campbell as his Queen. Brief shot of crowds of people walking alongside the floats shows a man doing a funny 'limp-wristed' gesture to the camera! The Cotton King and Queen go by on their float, waving to the crowds.
