    Parade at the decennial Great International Congress of the Salvation Army, London, June 1914. The Salvation Army's Great International Congress was held in London, England, beginning June 11, 1914. The congress was held every 10 years, and this was an auspicious opportunity to share experiences and enthusiasms with thousands of people from 58 countries including England, Australia, New Zealand, United States and Canada. The largest delegation, outside of England, was from the United States, which sent 600 men and women and 100 children. The American delegation included four bands, from New York; Chicago; Worcester, Massachusetts; and Flint, Michigan. The 55 band members from Flint were auto workers, and their expenses were paid by local businessmen. Elsewhere, American delegates paid their own expenses.

    Wystan, Thanks for collecting the images related to this event, and for the further details. Per the New York Times, the procession through London was June 13, 1914, and it looks like it was quite the show! We will add more information to this photograph's record as well as to the records of other related images.
