Description

An eager crowd surge forward to greet the parade, leaping into the air to catch a glimpse of the student floats. Spectators pursue the students as they make their way up Victoria Street.

This film was digitised as part of the BFI's Unlocking Film Heritage project.

Notes

In four years this empty lot on High Street will become the iconic Transport House. Built in the International Style it is one of the country‚Äôs youngest listed buildings. Its style and ideology still clashes with the existing Victorian architecture visible as the camera pans across the road.
