Rebekah Lodge Group from parade float, 1921

A black and white photograph of members of the Benevolent Rebekah Lodge No. 132 standing at the south west corner of Dundas Street and Byron Street. They won a prize for the best float in the parade to celebrate the paving of Dundas Street through Whitby in 1921. The Honourable F. C. Biggs, Minister of Public Works, dedicated the pavement in a special ceremony at the Four Corners (Brock Street and Dundas Street). There were 40 floats in the parade. The Rebekah Lodge float represented the campaign to build a general hospital in Whitby. The lady second from the left is a Toms and the young woman dressed as a nurse at centre is Mrs. Ruby Hewis. The Benevolent Rebekah Lodge won second prize for best float out of 40 floats in the parade.
