Tarvin Carnival in 1990 took the Football World Cup as the theme for it floats competition.

The photographs show three of the floats.

Representing Brazil were the resident of Deansway who finish in second place behind the winners, Tarvin Toddlers, who also depicted Brazil

A third place was Friends of Tarvin School who picked The United Arab Emirates and Egypt.

The play group which was in joint third place chose the Republic of Ireland.
