  • Short Summary

    Floats and bands travel down a crowd lined street in Newport - the Royal Gwent Hospital Carnival.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Newport. A Whole Town 'en Fete' - and all records broken in the Royal Gwent Hospital Carnival - in which 3,000 gaily dressed revellers took part, headed by the 'Queen of Sheba' & her court."

    Newport, Wales.

    A brass band leads soldiers on horseback down a crowd lined street.

    A large horse drawn float carries a woman dressed as 'The Queen of Sheba' and other women in fancy dress.

    A float comes past decorated as a windmill. The girls on the float are all dressed as Dutch women.

    Next comes a kazoo band - it is not clear if these men are black or merely blacked up.

    Sound Track Missing.
