This has to be post world war two , based on the vehicles and the WWII sailor costumes.

Also, prior to the nineteen forties , the carnival parade as such was a more middle class , sedate affair

. This video appears to be from the more "democratic " post WWII era , when the steelbands brought the common folk to the streets in droves.

There was NO prohibition of Carnival in the 1920's. Certain aspects of carnival have always been prohibited including carnival of  today. But carnival was banned during the second world war in the years 1942-45.

Amazing, if just a tiny bit shaky. The stuff at the end looks more like 1930's jusdging by the cars.
