In 1931, while her father was minding the coconut stall at Mitcham Fair, Louisa Prestney was born in a caravan by the village pond. Her parents and grandparents were show people, touring southern England with their fairground stalls and entertainments. The fairground life was in their blood, and for Louisa it was the same. It was a hard life, but it was work she loved.

Now Louisa is retired and settled down, and her fairground life from the 1930s to the 1970s seems a million years from the world of today.
