  • Description

    Pinewood Stock Cans material -

    Soho, London.

    Top shot of large crowds being held back by police. Various shots of carnival parade / procession through the streets of London's Soho area. Caricatures, papier mache models, carnival bands and lots of decorated floats. People watch from windows of buildings and from the pavements. Typical of Soho many of the floats feature attractive young women and advertise pubs or drinks. VS of a man in drag dancing down the street lifting his skirt high to show of stockings and suspenders. A troupe of Morris Dancers feature in the parade as do a jazz band. A float of women in bikinis ensures lots of men in the crowd are watching. A man in uniform on horseback is advertising 'The Gay Hussar' restaurant. More shots of floats and dancers.
