Title: As they painted the town green

Caption: "As they painted the town green--While the sons and daughters of Erin, 90,000 strong, marched up 5th Ave., Manhattan, in the traditional St. Patrick's Day parade, and an estimated 1,000,000 persons watched the colorful procession, Mayor Impellitteri, left, leaned over smilingly on the reviewing stand at 64th St. to hear what his predecessor at City Hall, Ambassador William O'Dwyer, had to say. Between them are John J. Sheahan (standing next to Impellitteri), the general parade committee chairman, and Kevin Bradshaw, mayor of Limerick, Ireland."
