25th August 1980.
Crowds of people line the route of the 13th West Indian Carnival procession. This is Chapeltown Road and, in the background, Warsaw Stores with its Polish delicatessen is visible at number 151. The stores were always busy selling refreshments to the onlookers on carnival day. Since 1967 Leeds West Indian Carnival has been a permanent fixture for August Bank Holiday and is a much anticipated event. Here, a group of young people are passing by, wearing conical hats with streamers and carrying flags.
