A collection of photographs taken by the
late fairground historian Jack Leeson over a period of 40 years.
The photographs in this remarkable book evoke the bygone age of traditional
fairs. Taking the heart of England on a county-by-county basis, the book covers fairs in
the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire,
Herefordshire and Worcestershire, Leicestershire, Coventry and Birmingham. The book was
compiled with the assistance of the National Fairground Archive at Sheffield University,
which is the guardian of this magnificent collection of fairground photographs.
Condition: In general good
condition with some signs of previous ownership. Bump to top right
of book, and creasing at top and bottom corners of
back cover, and general creasing on back cover. (Click photo above for close up of copy for sale).
