by Haggar's great-grandson, the book draws on oral reminiscences,
unpublished family memoirs and contemporary press reports. It tells
the rags-to-riches story of a travelling theatrical who became one
of Britain's select band of pioneer film-makers. Containing
information on Victorian portable theatres, fairground bioscope
shows and Haggar's films, this book is a "must" for anyone
interested in the popular entertainment of 100 years ago.
