This new edition of Voices from the Fairground is dedicated to three of its original contributors: John Hale, Arthur Spence and Jimmy Williams, all of whom have passed away since the first book appeared. But their voices, along with others, continue to be heard within these pages, offering some fascinating insights into fairground lives and livelihoods: such as the challenge of raising a family and ensuring the children's education while travelling the fairgrounds, and building up successful businesses making targets, selling brandy snap or supplying "swag" to other showmen. There are many more photographs to accompany the text and and "lure of the fairground" is eloquently expressed throughout the book.
