Travelling Fairs are - in the words of Henry Morley - 'the unwritten story of the history of the people'. Over the past ten years the staff at the National Fairground Archive (NFA) have collected, conserved and catalogued many thousands of records and photographic images, to try and capture this story for future generations. The records in the collection take many forms, but ultimately the NFA is about people, the showpeople who present the attractions and the local people for whom the fair played an important part in their region's history. The collections described to you in the booklet are just a few aspects of the full range of historical and educational material to be found within the NFA. We invite you to see our own archives and to take a tour with us through the fascinating and colourful collections that make up the NFA and its holdings.

Condition: Very good.
