Alan S. Howell
Alan Sidney Howell was born in 1943 and lived for the majority of his life with his wife and children in the Staffordshire brewing town of Burton-upon-Trent.

After taking early retirement in 1993 from a successful career as a finance manager with British Rail, he embarked on writing this extraordinary tribute to the many artistic talents of both his father Sid Howell and grandfather Albert Howell.

Until his untimely death in January 2001, Alan spent several years with the help of friends, family and craftsmen from the Orton & Spooner era, compiling the life history of this father and son team, who were widely regarded as two of the most respected fairground artists of their generation.

This book is dedicated to the memory of the AS Howells and illustrates their lives, their times and the artwork on which their reputation was built.
