Parade 2015 06

With the remainder of my ‘return-to-work’ days, I made another banner for this year’s Manchester Day Parade, with friend Glenys Walsh. It commemorated Henry Taylor, a swimmer from Hollinwood who represented the UK at 4 summer Olympics. His record of 3 gold medals at the 1908 games stood for 100 years, until it was equaled in 2008 by the cyclist Chris Hoy. The banner was accompanied in the parade by a shoal of swimmers and a giant puppet of Henry in action!
