Exceptionally rare brochure and history of Frederick Savage Ltd, published in the 1960s by the engineering company which is most famous for building fairground rides. This is a revised and enlarged version of the 1950 publication '100 - Not Out'. It includes an introduction by Managing Director J. Stephenson Pilling, and a painstakingly written history of the company, detailing many of its mechanical creations. Rides featured include Thirty Galloping Cockerels, Gondola Switchback, Sea-on-Land, Steam Swings and Razzle Dazzle, as well as numerous showmen's engines and other portable engines. The booklet includes photographs of the rides and transport, including several technical drawings.

This is one of the most sought-after and collectable fairground publications.
