Colour image21st June 1980. Image shows proud members of Lewis's 'Fells Wargo Railway Co.'(A humorous play on words with reference to 'Wells Fargo', of course). They pose in their colourful costumes in front of the spectacular decorated steam engine of the American West. This was Lewis's entry to the 7th Lord Mayor's Parade for which it won Best Overall Entry. It took over 20,000 ribbon parcel bows to decorate the float. Four female staff are dressed as saloon girls complete with buttoned boots and Ostrich feather headdresses. There is a cowboy in the centre and the two North American indians are Neil Malloch, left, and Simon Riley, right, both from the Display Department of Lewis's on the Headrow. The Parade set off from Woodhouse Moor, seen here, then went down Woodhouse Lane, then Merrion Street and Vicar Lane, into Briggate then the Headrow, on to Calverley Street, past the Civic Hall to salute the Lord Mayor and finally returned to Woodhouse Moor.
