Beauty queens from different London districts feature in this very brief film from the Boulter Family Films archive. The film was probably shot at the Barking & Dagenham Town Show in the mid-1960s and features four floats each carrying waving women, dressed in ball gowns and tiaras. The only float with a readable banner represents Edmonton.
