About this object
A postcard photograph of a float from the second Napier Mardi Gras, 1914.

The photograph appears to have been taken in a rural area. The float appears to be constructed on the back of a flat bed truck. The truck is covered in hay and tussock grasses. There are four white lion statues on the float and several young boys dressed in naval and army uniforms. The cab of the truck is draped in a Union Jack. Several people are visible in the background of the image under the trees.
