Old Mother Riley.Sorry but we couldn’t resist putting this picture up even tho the quality is poor.It was taken near the Parkend Rd entrance to the park and is, we believe, the first carnival parade after WW2. This chap was an ARP Warden during the war. I bet he didn’t shout ‘put that light out’ dressed like this!
