No titles. Easter Parade in Battersea Park.
Various shots of the Easter Parade in Battersea Park. The theme is 'Transport Through The Ages'. The first float we see shows glamour girls on a 'Jersey' themed float, sitting on motorboats and waving to the crowd. A carnival queen sits on a throne on the float - could be London Tourist Board Easter Princess Christina Hasler.
Other floats depict space travel - with people in space or robot costumes walking alongside - and varied forms of transport, such as an old omnibus, a steam traction engine, horse-drawn fire engine, camels, horse-drawn carriages and stagecoaches. A woman is carried along in a sedan chair, others ride in a Roman-style chariot, while some stone-age children pull along a simple cart, with a stone-age girl sitting on it.
Also seen are old bicycles - penny farthing, boneshaker and double-seater. People sitting on top of an old motor bus wear decorated hats. M/Ss of hippy couples walking along, wearing decorated hats and headgear.
Note: parade was organised by the London Tourist Board.
