A trip to the Aberdare Carnival 1970

A few pictures showing some Rhigos people at the Aberdare carnival outside the Aberdare Park gates in the summer of 1970. The first three pictures show some people from Rhigos and these have been labelled in the first picture. Hover your cursor over the heads of the five people in the front right of the picture you can see their names

This first picture shows the Penywaun carnival queen float at the entrance to Aberdare Park

And next the The Nursing float. The banner at the front reads "Nursing, the passport to any part of the World"

And finally, one of the marching bands.
The banner on the float behind it reads "Charles Dickens Centenary Year. A scene from A Tale of Two Cities"
