The float, decorated with flowers, has Buckland Grange on the side. In the background is the Odd Fellows Building, known as of this writing in 2010 as McCusker's Market and the Shelburne Falls Wine Merchant shops. To the right is a lower brick building and to the right of that is the Buckland Town Office building, a wooden structure. A man in a white outfit and hat stands at attention next to the horses, while another, in darker clothing, appears to be holding the reins.
