A photographer prepares to take pictures of the participants of the 13th Leeds West Indian Carnival in Potternewton Park. Also seen, behind the barriers, are some of the onlookers who are gathered to enjoy the specatular costumes, music and dancing as the carnival procession gets ready to set off. It was to leave the park at 2 pm and follow a route along Harehills Lane, Roundhay Road, Barrack Road, Chapeltown Road and Harehills Avenue before returning to the park for the judging.
