These photos are from the 1971 inauguration parade in Harrisburg. In the top photo, the Altoona Area High School color guard members turn toward the reviewing stand preceding the 40 majorettes and 112-member band directed by Darwin H. Bistline. The band marched in the parade’s second division. At right, the majorettes march. Above, Altoona’s 28th Division Band leads the parade. The photos were taken by Altoona Mirror photographer Don Baker. They were submitted by Diana (Shiffler) Ferry of Glasgow, who was a majorette during high school.
