Collection: NYU Tamiment Library

The sight of fathers carrying their children on their shoulders was not unusual at May Day Parades, such as in this picture, taken during the 1936 parade by John Albok.  The marchers are marching along Eighth Avenue to 17th Street, where they turned east and marched into Union Square.
