Bramley Carnival, procession
Undated. View shows a decorated horse-drawn carriage taking part in the procession at Bramley Carnival, watched by crowds gathered along Town Street. The first official Bramley Carnival was held in 1892 but it may have dated back to around 1865 unofficially. It is believed to have originated from Friendly Society Walks which were an annual event in the 19th century. There were several Friendly Societies in the town and on one occasion in the mid 1800s it is said that two Society Walks met head on in Town Street, with the bands leading each parade trying to outplay each other. The event is remembered as the 'Bramley Clash' and is believed to be the forerunner of the Carnival.

In the photograph is The Grapes public house, there are some men stood on the entrance step and another looking out of the window the lantern above them looks to have a depiction of a bunch of grapes and just above it slightly to the left you can see the beginning of the pubs name
