Look: 1948 championship parade drew a lot less people to Cleveland

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The crowd Wednesday for the Cleveland Cavaliers championship parade was estimated between 1.3 and 1.5 million. That's a significant difference from the turn out in the city for the 1948 Indians champions.

Burt Graeff, a former sports writer at The Plain Dealer, posted a picture from the 1948 event on Facebook. It was estimated that 200,000 people celebrated that day.
