The film footage below¬†is an excerpt from the 1964 film, “Parramatta: Cradle of a Nation”. It was sponsored¬†by the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce, filmed with the support of Esso and directed by Cyril Cox. This footage shows Church Street in 1963 and then switches to older footage of a parade in Church Street, around 1913, at what is now Centenary Square.
