Sources of further information

These spectators may well be looking at the program for the Pageant - and HALS has a bundle of documents reference DP21/29/5 that contains "programme for Jubilee and coronation celebrations, etc., 1887-1911" which may well include a copy.

There will also, almost certainly, be further information in the local paper.
