1955 Carnival procession with the George (36 Newland Street) on the right, with 2 Collingwood Road behind it. Small bit of Glover’s garage (38 Newland Street) on left. Looking up Collingwood Road. Shows a Carnival queen in a car, but not the Witham one, by comparison with newspaper etc. Might be Braintree Winter Queen, Miss Maureen Hanlon. Behind is lorry, probably with children’s fancy dress entrants on it.
