This unique book deals with one of the
most interesting aspects of the colourful world of the travelling
fairground and circus operators, namely their enormous variety of
transport and special equipment vehicles.
Presented with considerable research
and help from Dennis N Miller, a leading expert in this field who
has intimate personal knowledge of 'showland', this is a carefully
selected compendium of steam road locomotives and showman's engines,
petrol- and diesel-engined lorries and converted buses, generating
plants and living wagons, including needless to say, many examples
of the ubiquitous ex-WD trucks and tractors by AEC, Diamond T, Mack,
Scammell and countless others.
This book will have a strong appeal
to everybody with any interest in steam and motor vehicles, old and
modern, large and small.
