Here it is...the rollicking real story of the largest midway on Earth, from its earliest days to its gala, glittering years of opulent grandeur, to its eventual decline and disastrous bust. Here are stories of the colourful characters who built this monster outdoor amusement enterprise, the showmen whose thrilling rides and attractions brought vast throngs through its golden gates, and the carnies who laboured to keep it rolling in spite of all obstacles.

Yes, it's all here...on the inside...in 15 exciting chapters, with more than 100 historic photographs, a complete wagon list, routes for all years, etc.
