These photos were submitted by Bernard A. Zink, of Sacramento, CA. Mr. Zink was the chief representative for the Diesel Engine Exhibit in the original 1936 Parade of Progress. He was in inaugural show, first held in Florida. 

1936 Crew


 Image was important to GM and the 1936 Parade of Progress Crew were all decked out in sharp uniforms.

Looking every bit the part of Hollywood types and fighter pilots, the paraders take a few moments to stretch their legs and enjoy a cigar during a rest stop. Barnard Zink (who supplied most of these 1936 pictures) is the one in the middle with no cigar.
