Bramley Carnival, procession (Bramley)
Black & White imageUndated. View shows crowds lining the streets of Bramley to watch the Carnival procession go past. The parade is travelling along Elder Road by the junctions with Bramley Terrace (left) and Bramley Place. An unusual float in the foreground features a couple on a bed. Bramley Carnival was a regular event during the late 19th and early 20th centuries at which time this photo was taken. It continued till around 1952 after which, like in many other towns and villages, it was abandoned for some years until being resurrected in the 1970s. It has since become a regular event again, although it is now held biannually instead of annually.
