What The Decorated Route May Have Looked Like

The eventual winner of the contract was Womersley Limited. We can get some idea of what the route along Stretford Road would have been like from this postcard that has been over painted by hand to demonstrate how the route would look on the day.

The route passed the Technical Institute on Stretford Road.

As part of the day's celebrations an evening party was planned at the Council Offices on Talbot Road, so this building was also decorated.
