A collection of photographs taken by the
late fairground historian Jack Leeson over a period of 40 years.
The photographs in this remarkable book evoke the bygone age of traditional
fairs. Taking the heart of England on a county-by-county basis, the book covers fairs in
the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire,
Herefordshire and Worcestershire, Leicestershire, Coventry and Birmingham. The book was
compiled with the assistance of the National Fairground Archive at Sheffield University,
which is the guardian of this magnificent collection of fairground photographs.
Condition: In general good condition with
some signs of previous ownership - some creasing to front and back
cover, corner chipped off first internal page, internally near fine.
