Photographer's Note

The Loughborough Fair hits our town annually - from the National Fairground Archive - "Traditionally the ending to the travelling season, Loughborough has a special place in the hearts of the travelling showpeople. Loughborough commences on the second Thursday of November, dating back to a charter granted by Henry III in 1228. The fair was traditionally held on the Market Square, but now covers most of the town with showmen occupying major streets and spaces."

I wonder if they sold chips in those early days? Well no of course because we had no potatoes until the travels to the Americas and the commercial sale of chips first occurred in the UK in the 1800's - but some of the fairground families have been running the rides at this fair for decades.......and as the pictures shows they start 'em young in soaking up the atmosphere of the fair.
