Rolling down to Rio

June 27, 2009 at 22:13 | Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments


It’s Barrow Carnival day, and the streets are, well, not quite thronged but pretty busy all the same. Unlike the last two years, it didn’t rain although after a glorious week when I was much too busy enjoying the sunshine to take many pictures it was overcast and a tad muggy. Still, it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of these local drag queens.

Ok, It ain’t Rio and it ain’t Notting Hill, but at least you can breathe.

  1. What a scene! Hahaha, fun!

  2. Glad to hear Barrow Carnival is still going. In the 1950s i used to watch it every year as it passed along Rawlinson Street. It seemed to go on for ages and was great fun. I think that in those days it raised money fro Infield Convalescent Home which stood, I think, where Infield Gardens now is (are?).

  3. Olá! Estou encantado com o teu espaço, são lindas fotos, porém seria bem melhor se colocasses um tradutor, pois ficaria mais fácil para entender e comentar.



  4. No good for running in I’d imagine!

  5. Very colorful scene.
