7th Lord Mayor's Parade, Woodhouse Moor showing a young participant (City Centre)
Colour image21st June 1980. Image taken during the 7th Lord Mayor's Parade which started from Woodhouse Moor. The little girl, in her fancy costume, is seated on the float entered by Lewis's department store depicting a steam engine of the American West. The engine is constructed using bales of straw, but on the outside it was completely covered in over 20,000 ribbon bows in red, green and gold. The little girl wears a sequinned, layered net skirt and a silver cape trimmed with swansdown. She carries a wand with silver bells, beads and trailing white ribbons. It was a cold, showery day but a successful one for Lewis's as the store won 'The Lord's Mayor's Award for the Best Overall Entry.
