    Liverpool, Merseyside.

    Title missing. According to the original issue sheet, it should read: "Lady Mayoress judges 400 magnificently decorated beasts, competing for £500 prizes".

Brief C/U of the Mayoress and a man wearing a large chain (the mayor?) sitting in front of the building watching the parade. More shots of the parade; the horses' bridles are decorated with bells and flowers.

    M/S of the horses standing with their owners. Panning shot of two horse drawn carts passing the group of shire horses in fancy dress standing with their owners in the middle of a busy road.
