This book offers a reflection on over 40 years of fairground enthusiasm, in stunning and atmospheric photographs.

The travelling fair brings an incongruity to the established built environment. They place the extra-ordinary amidst our everyday landscapes. Fairs such as Ilkeston, which are still held in the centre of towns, seem to have the amusements sown into their fabric for a few days. Some of these images centre on the atmosphere of small details of the ride in its surroundings, and the routines that are part of its operation and maintenance.
