A few rather badly faded photos of City Branch Leeds float in Leeds Lord Mayor's parade in, I think 1974.
The theme was Leeds, a hive of industry so we were dressed as money bees.
The parade used to be a huge event and it was such great fun to take part.
We made the float and bee costumes ourselves, putting a great deal of effort in.
We won an award that year which was especially exciting as so many of the other floats from big organisations were professionally made.
In the years I took part we also dressed as Vikings, owls and coins.
