Other newspapers were shorter in their opinions, but a tone of approval still dominated. To help decide the Pageant Committee put out an advertisement in the Bury Free Press asking for suggestions.
But the most frequent suggestions were for something that would help the lot of the poor and working classes. We have had our Pageant… What have we learned from our past history, and what fruit are we going to show as the result of that lesson? Bury has paraded in fine clothes, and reproduced many noble acts in pageant, but what has she learned to do in deed, or was the lesson all in vain?
