Ticker Tape douglas-macarthur[1]ticker tapeParades in NYC , do they still exist ? I remember watching them on the telly. In black and white of course. I clearly remember the one after the landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, Michael Collis.There was one on April 22nd 1951 for general Douglas Mac Arthur. Ticker Trade Parade must have been the biggest honour you could think of, beside winning  a gold medal at the Olympics I guess.
