Not a thing on the road.I was thinking maybe England were playing just then, 1966, because I've never seen it that quiet, even in the 60's. Sadly, England winning the world cup is not in my memory banks, I wouldn't have been quite 6 then.

What always sticks in my memory of this parade is seeing at different times, Barry Cryer,Ronnie Hilton,Jackie Charlton and Marion Ryan presumably doing their Saturday shop.
