This year, the 157th Annual Firemen's Inspection Day Parade will proceed upstreet (and uphill) on Warren Street instead of downstreet. Far from being an unprecedented break with tradition, the new route seems to be a return to the parade routes of yesteryear. A reader provided these pictures of an Inspection Day Parade in the 1950s. They were taken at the intersection of Warren and Third streets. Notice the awning on 260 Warren Street, the barber pole at 302 Warren, where The Bee's Knees is now located, the streetcar tracks, the cobblestones, and that car with the remarkable tail fins.
