Yes, what a helmet!! :-)

So much pagantry!

Tanya said...

Great photo! I wonder why they wore the strap like that? It doesn't seem very effective, but the helmet is ornate!

Ivy said...

It doesn't seem to fit quite right does it? The finery looks like something right out of a children's book with the crazy helmeted man as the bad guy. Bet the parade was fun to watch!

Beatiful photo!!
Is the building "the Royal Courts of Justice"???

It seems to me.

Like Tanya, I've always wondered about the strap being worn just under the lip — doesn't look very comfortable.

Funky helmet. Love the purple horse tail though (what do you call them?).
