A 136-page pictorial book chronicling the history of the Hoppings, from the 1882 Temperance Festival through to the current mega-fairground.  Containing hundreds of photos covering the Victorian steam machines and modern Millennium thrill rides.

The book features hundreds of faces from the showmen who make the fairground what it is, plus an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how the fair is set up by Fair Surveyor, Albert Austin.  Author Paul Lanagan has worked at the Town Moor Fairground School since 2003 and during that time has captured and recorded many unseen moments, many of which are featured in the book.
