Description

A procession of floats make their way past crowds of onlookers.

The vivid array of floats advertise local companies and services, including the Castle restaurant, O'Kane Bros and the fire brigade.

Notes

These evocative scenes were captured by James Houston, a keen and skilful amateur film maker, based in Strabane in the 1940s and 1950s.
