Tibshelf At Play – It’s Carnival Time
A colour retouched photograph of the principals at the first Tibshelf Carnival in 1935. The Carnival Queen in the pink dress was Miss M. Irons, and the carnival King in the pale blue jacket was Roy Hall. The attendants were D. Smith (far left), and Joyce Woodland (far right), with Bill Gardner at the back (Photograph kindly loaned by Mrs. Joyce Holmes).
The theme of this float is “Crossing the Line”, i.e., sailing over the equator (I never knew that was located on Newton Road !!!!!). Does anyone recognise anyone on these floats, or if you were one of the youngsters, it could have been you? As these photos were taken nearly 80 years ago, any octogenarians could be there on the floats or the horse. Please let us know.
