Pottternewton Park, little girls in costume
25th August 1980. These little girls in their spangled carnival costumes are photographed in Potternewton Park. Something has caught the eye of the girl on the left and she is drawing it to the attention of the smaller child beside her. As the participants gathered for the 13th Leeds West Indian Carnival procession there would have been plenty of exciting sights and sounds with spectacular costumes and lively music from the steel bands. These young girls are wearing headdresses adorned with pairs of little birds and simple dresses decorated with rows of fringing.
