author, John Eva, is a retired showman, who has spent a life on the
fairground. The book tells the story of his fascinating life,
including his two years of army service in Hong Kong, and the period
when he started a motor dismantling yard in Scunthorpe. In more
recent years, John Eva has become well-known as a maker of 1/12th
scale models of fairground transport, and this is covered in the
book too, including photographs.
