Early 1940s Bluffton parade

Here's a Blufton parade in the early 1940s. This is the Bluffton Masonic Lodge. Several observations:
• 48-star flags
• Western Ohio Railroad interuban tracks still evident on Main Street
• Elk Restaurant in the building that today houses Ellerbrock Spine and Soft Tissue
• Check out the awnings on the restaurant
• Muma's Electric Shop, radio service in is the office that today houses Faith Investment Services
• Apparently, behind that Oscar Velasquez mural is a large mural ad for a 5 cent cigar that is "truly a 10 cent quality"
