Acknowledged as a classic book detailing the advent of moving pictures in Britain and its transfer to the fairgrounds, at first as a novelty in small booths, and then its subsequent growth into magnificent travelling picture palaces.

The book attempts to catalogue every show that travelled Great Britain, with many detailed biographical notes about the people that travelled them. There is also a detailed biographical section on the mechanical organs which were attached to the shows and the intense competition in the fairground organ building industry in Paris.
