A crowd of spectators watching the 1960 Carnival procession, mostly women and children, outside (left to right) 54 Newland Street (sign saying ‘chiropo…’ on part), and 52 Newland Street (Home and Colonial).
The Carnival Queen was nearly late, and one of the bands didn’t arrive till towards the end, but it was a successful day – see the Braintree and Witham Times, 23 June 1960.
There are quite a number of photos of this 1960 Carnival, for which see M360 to M364, M426, M835 and M836, and M990 to M992.
