Identified only as “Parade participant circa 1934” is none other than Don Adolfo Camarillo, family namesake of the city of the same name; the horse is Sultan, perhaps the most recognizable horse in the Fiesta parade for many many years. This same horse and rider proudly represented Southern California on opening day of the Oakland Bay Bridge two years later.
