“As you start to walk on the way, the way appears" :Rumiی

This week's sepia saturday theme is around "Parades". I share a photo below  of The Halifax  Charity Gala Parade sometime in the70's.
I was a Samartian Volunteer for 7 years in Halifax. ( n.b.The Samaritans are a suicide support line)
You can read much more  about that here 
During my searches for this post I  also came across This   
wonderful video of 1950's Halifax.Included (17 minutes in ) is the Gala Parade through the town center  and at Manor Heath..Copyright prevents me from embedding here, but it's worth a view here http://www.yorkshirefilmarchive.com/film/civil-defence-exercise-etc

Love the bathtub photo -- very clever float idea for a charity parade! And the curry dinner photos are fun as well. Always great getting together with friends, especially if the food is excellent :-)

Wendy said...

HA - what a fun float, much more light-hearted than the organization's purpose would indicate.

A good idea to cheer people up and to see the funny side of things if at all possible. Great float - shame you weren't in the bath yourself!

Barbara Rogers said...

Cute float indeed, and I hope there wasn't really water in the tub, or those folks waving would have been really prunes by the end of the parade!

Nice bath photo but I had to wonder why there was a subtitle in Arabic underneath?

You are lucky to have so many friends to socialize with so close around. I guess that is an advantage to not moving around as often as I have, your whole life.

Rub-a-dub tub indeed. Looks like a boys night out too.

Curious to know what year your photo is from.
