Tournament of Roses -- December 30, 2013

A Santa Fe Railroad ad from the 30-December-1913 San Francisco Call and Post advertises the Tournament of Roses Parade, which has been held in Pasadena since 1890.  This year Stanford will play Michigan in what is being advertised as the 100th Rose Bowl Game.  The first game was held in 1902, and the next one in 1916.  It has been held every year since.  The football game replaced the Roman Chariot Race.
