Fair by Day, Fair by Night

Last weekend was spent taking care of a friends 1948 Scammell Showtrac lorry at Carters Steam Fair in Bath's Victoria Park. A visit to Carters is always a fantastic day out, they travel mostly across the South of England but if they're in your area and you get a chance, it's well worth a trip.
I've written about the fair before (back in May when they set up at Pinkneys Green near Maidenhead) and did put a few pictures on Instagram over the weekend - you'll probably get bored of me featuring them at some point!
Anyway, here's a few snapshots from the day...

And few snapshots from the evening...
After the crowds have gone, after the lights have dimmed, after the music has stopped, the dismantling begins...

  1. How wonderful :) I love old fashioned funfairs- they're so colourful and nostalgic. xx

    1. Snap! The colours and designs are some of the things we love about the fairground as well. I've already put together a post about the art of the fairground - should be online Friday :-) xx
