Cadets from P.M.C. (Pennsylvania Military College) marching in the 1963 Pulaski Day parade on Edgemont Avenue at 11th Street. The building in the background is the Deshong Library and Art Museum. P.M.C. cadets in their gray uniforms were a familiar sight on the streets of Chester, especially on Sunday mornings when they would march in formation past my family's house on Potter Street on their way to church at St. Michael's, St. Paul's, or other churches in downtown Chester.

No, it's not New Year's Day in South Philly. This string band was marching past Deshong Park on Edgemont Ave. in the 1963 Pulaski Day parade.
