Parade in Victoria Park

Sydney, NS

Circa 1930's

This photo shows a parade through Victoria Park. The event is not identified. The view is from the centre of the park looking south toward Charlotte Street which ended at the gates of the park. The large structures are the old British built barrack buldings which dated back to the early to mid 1800's. The parade appears to be led by a brass band followed by a group of WW1 veterans.

Sydney, NS

Circa 1930's

This is another photo in the same series as the previous photo. The view is from the centre of the park looking south toward Charlotte Street which ended at the gates of the park which are just visible in the far background. The large structures are the old British built barrack buldings which dated back to the early to mid 1800's. The men at the front of the parade appear to be a goup of WW1 veterans. Behind them is the brass band of the Cape Breton Highlanders.

Ceremony at Victoria Park

Sydney, NS

Circa 1930's

This is the third photo from the series. The parade seems to have ended in the large field located at the north end of Victoria Park where an unidentified ceremony is taking place. The photo appears to have been taken from a grandstand. Note the steel plant in the background and the ship in the harbour.
