Colorado Governor Daniel Thornton sits in the back of a Cadillac convertible that leads a parade in Denver, Colorado. The governor sits beside probably Lieutenant Governor Gordon Allott and waves at the large crowd that is gathered along the drive that surrounds the state capitol building. A second convertible is behind the governor's car followed by men in western attire riding horseback. State patrol officers hold back the crowd. Signs read: "Parking Reserved Legislator Cars Only."
