Fairgrounds have been popular in Britain since we can remember. We still love go go to the fair, but in the good old days a trip to the fairground was a real treat. We loved to hear the sounds; the children laughing and the music blasting out of speakers. We can remember the smell of the generators which sharply contrasted with the sweet aroma of candy floss and donuts. In the good old days, there was something at the fairground for everyone, whether you were knocking cans off a shelf, sliding down the Helter-Skelter, or trying not to be sick on the Waltzer. The fairground was a special treat that filled residents with anticipation and excitement once a year. Take a look at some of our best fairground photographs from our nostalgia books.
