Photographer's Note

This year I noticed quite a few babies amongst the fair workers - at the core of the fair are the families - the owners who hand the business down from generation to generation. This little one is on grandad's ride - he's fixing the lights and mum is cleaning the ride - baby plays with a coin - practising from the start!

Many fairground people marry within the business - who else would put up wth the lifestyle - that's what the families argue - I know someone with four daughters but only one has found a suitable partner - they barely think of doing anything else though.

The fairs also take on guys who mind the rides and help with construction - no nonsense people it's best to keep on the right side of.

.....it all begins in innocence though as this little one reminds us.
