Acknowledged as a
classic book detailing the advent of moving pictures in Britain and
its transfer to the fairgrounds, at first as a novelty in small
booths, and then its subsequent growth into magnificent travelling
attempts to catalogue every show that travelled Great Britain, with
many detailed biographical notes about the people that travelled
them. There is also a detailed biographical section on the
mechanical organs which were attached to the shows and the intense
competition in the fairground organ building industry in Paris.
