Royal Visit to Bradford

The street decorations of Bradford, and those of the Technical School, were furnished by Messrs. J. Defries and Sons, of Houndsditch, London, who also contributed some of the most attractive objects in the Exhibition opened there. Mr. James Pain, of Walworth-road, London, pyrotechnist, arranged the festive bonfires on the hills around the town, and provided the fireworks in Lister Park.
