Liverpool in the British Pathe Archive:
Sefton Park.

Life Let's go hyperlocal now  and search in the archive for my general area in Sefton Park, Liverpool offering a short history of the review field which is now the home of the festivals and over the Easter weekend, Billy Smart's Circus.

"Item title reads - Liverpool "Terriers" reviewed by RUSHTON, A. LORD MAYOR OF LIVERPOOL And MAJOR GENERAL H. DE PREE. Sefton Park. Merseyside."

"Liverpool: WS. Lord Derby, Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire representing the King takes the salute at the Review Field in Sefton Park WS. Pan across dignitaries and officers saluting. WS. troops marching past. LS. Detachment of the Mersey division of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve passing the Lord Mayor with shouldered rifles. MS.
