This elaborately decorated Hubmobile was owned by Dr. Antonio E. Fidanza. In 1913, it participated in one of the earliest Colombus Day parades. Shown in the photograph are Benny (Dr. Fidanza's driver) and Italia Mendozzi (who is wearing the large white hat and who personally made all the flowers in the car). Also in the photograph are Judge Arthur Votolato, John Votolato, and Roger Riccio.
