  • Description

    Item title reads: " "We're Going To Have Our Carnival - Rain Or No Rain!". (and it teemed down!) and if ever a picture could portray British climate and character at one time - here it is."

    Morecambe, Lancashire

    M/S crowds wait in a line along a street in pouring rain, umbrellas and kids abound. One person dances in the middle of the street doing a crazy dance in the rain, like Scottish dancing with high kicks. Cars and trucks parade along in the wet. Some men stand near some miniature vehicles, as if getting ready for a race.

    Note: British weather - triumph against adversity- and a great dance by one individual.
