  • Description

    Titles read: 'Manchester. Whit-Monday Procession. Pretty scenes at the annual religious Festival.'

    Little schoolgirls in white dresses walk along holding canes decorated with flowers - they look like a bunch of Little Bo Peeps! Teachers walk with them. Large crowds watch in the background.

    Then a group of both small girls and boys in sailor suits walk carrying streamers attached to a sort of framework held up by men carrying poles - on this; UNITY is spelled out in flowers. Teacher; also in white; carrying umbrella; holding hand of little boy.

    Holidays; Religion; parades.
