Leeds West Indian Carnival Costume

This young woman is wearing a colourful and elaborate costume created for the Leeds West Indian Carnival. She is dressed in blue and is supporting a white 'cage' on her shoulders where fish appear to be swimming in and out. A huge canopy of flames in red, orange and gold fan out behind her. The very first West Indian Carnival in Britain was held in Leeds in 1967.
