This photo was taken during the Glassboro Fire Company's Thanksgiving Parade. Featured in this photo is Bill Carter driving the vehicle. The parade typically began at the fountain in the intersection between Academy, New, and State Streets. Hundreds of visitors from nearby towns came to Glassboro to witness the annual parade.

The fire department participated in many parades in the town to celebrate a number of events. The town held a parade on Firemen's Day, which was November 30, 1910 to commemorate the building of the new firehouse. The Glassboro Fire Department also held a parade in honor of President Washingtons birthday, February 22, to display their newly purchased uniforms. Glassboro held another parade to celebrate the end of World War I in November 1918.
