"The Sandwich floral carriage which took part in the Cadillac celebration at the City of Detroit. Captain F. C. Fulmer is standing by the horses' heads. During the week of July 21, 1901, the bicentenary celebration was held in the City of Detroit, to mark the 200th anniversary of the settlement of Detroit by Cadillac. Sandwich was fittingly represented by a carriage beautifully decorated with yellow chrysanthemums and drawn by a fine team of black horses. The occupants of the carriage were Miss Laura Girardot, Miss Elmira Marentette, Miss Isabella Spiers and Miss Marie Morand. Very complimentary notices afterwards appeared in the public press of Detroit and Windsor, saying: The carriages of the Canadians were much admired. The Walkerville and Sandwich carriages were loudly cheered and applauded as they passed the reviewing stand."
