I thought you might like to see this collection of stills from a video made of Sheffield University Rag Week including footage of the Rag Parade held in Sheffield City Centre.

Students in all kinds of costumes and on all types of floats parade through the city centre raising money

Quite the turn out for rag parade in sheffield back then too!

Sheffield Rag Parade passes by Sheffield Town hall on Pinstone Street

In the background you can see Timpsons Shoes and also behind that Cinema House on Barkers Pool (actually was still classed as Fargate then but was renamed to Barkers Pool later)

Designed by H.E. Farmer, opened 6th May 1913. Closed 12th August 1961 and demolished for redevelopment.
