Q: I have 38 black and white photographs of the 1927 Rose Parade. There’s a description of each photo on the back. They’re all 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches and in excellent condition. Are they collectible?

A: Original photos of the 1927 Tournament of Roses Parade (its official name) sell online for $5 to $10 apiece. The first Rose Parade was held in 1890, but 1927 was the first year the parade was broadcast on the radio. A set of 38 photos from the parade might be of interest to a historical society or museum in Pasadena or nearby communities. If so, you could consider donating the photos.
