Looking for info about this world war two photo

What can you tell me about this photo?

I bought this photo at an antique shop in Ithaca, NY. It's an original photo, possibly a press photo. It depicts the fourth horseman (death) beating the Nazi drums of war. Judging by the bunting in the background it was taken in the USA. That's all I know about it. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Further digging indicates it was June 13, 1942 - here's the NYT archive page describing the parade.
Apparently the parade was called "New York at War"

Relevant link to Prelinger Archive footage (in color!) with the float in question starting at 3:18. One of the reviewers at that link describes some of the parade content.

Here's a closer look at the float in action, 5:10 to 5:22 or so. YT: New York at War Parade (1942).
