Manchester Rag Day Parade 1974

Here at the Manchester and Salford students' Rag day parade that was staged in 1974. The students of seventy four parading through the streets of the city accompanied by a very stern looking policeman. However, two of his colleagues, a monkey masked driver and a couple of Monty Python fans dressed as Gumbys add some fun to the parade.

  1. It might be just me, but this is the first parade I've ever seen that didn't seem to have any commercial marquees set up anywhere. I guess the weather then was surprisingly good enough to allow that.
