May Day Parade

May Day Parade about the time of the First World War
From Doanld F. Rinald

I will offer you  a picture of a neighborhood group holding a May Day parade on Oak Street, Weehawken, about the time of the First World War.  Fred H. Rinald was a teen ager and is wearing the Uncle Sam Costume.  He lived at 115 Oak Street.  We just visited there and there is still a house, but it has all new siding. People in Weehawken take good care of their homes!  I have the marriage record of Frank Rinald (or Rinaldi) and Helen Altenkirch.  Although I knew my grandmother, Frank died sometime between 1915 and 1930, and I did not know him.  I have the  record of Helen entering the country as a 3 year-old, but nothing on Frank.
