From the back sleeve:

"A documentary using rare archive films, dating back from the late Nineteenth Century up to the early Seventies. Narrated by Dennis McCarthy MBE, telling the story of Nottingham Goose Fair.

Starting with the fair at the Old Market Square and then moving to the Forest Recreation Ground, where period showmen's transport and their loads are seen pulling on, with marques such as ERF, Foden, Leyland and Scammell. Including scenes of the rides being built up and pulled down.

A fantastic variety of rides are seen in action by ay and night, many no longer in existence, like the Wiggle Woggle. More modern rides include the big wheels, cakewalk, calypso, caterpillar, dodgems, gallopers, jets, octopus, satellite and steam yachts.

Plus the side shows that greatly contribute to the unique atmosphere of the fairground, such as the menagerie, boxing booth and wall of death. Together with the ornate juveniles including the autodrome, mini jets and toyset."

Condition: Very good.
