The Blossom Parade float is labelled “The Old Grey Mare.” The car is towing an old Nimon’s coach which the Burden family had previously used as a playhouse. Neil Burden dragged it onto the trailer for the Blossom Parade. Later the coach was offered back to Nimon’s for five pounds but it was destroyed in their yard by fire.
