A photograph of two contestants in the Fancy Dress Parade at Southend Carnival, taken by James Jarche for the Daily Herald newspaper on 31 August, 1932. Southend-on-Sea grew in popularity as a seaside holiday destination throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Southend Carnival began in 1906 as a parade, but by the 1930s it had grown to a full week of events. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
