Memorial Procession in English Country Town 1915

United Kingdom

Top-hatted English gents - and one Japanese gentleman - parade through the streets of Stratford-upon-Avon to mark the double celebration of Shakespeare's birthday and St George's Day. There's plenty of local colour in these vibrant street scenes, as flags from various countries are unfurled alongside St George's flags on Bridge Street. The Old Red Lion pub is glimpsed in the background.
