This book covers English fairground carved animals from the 1870s to the 1930s, their origins, the rides from which they came and their restoration in original styles as collectable antiques. The book features 287 colour and 58 monochrome photographs. The historical origins of many of the carvings featured is shown by the inclusion of early photos of the original rides. In many cases, the stages of restoration and magnificent redecoration in their original styles is shown in photographs from both the author's and other collections.
