Braithwaite, David.
Fairground Architecture.

London Hugh Evelyn: 1976. 2nd edition.

A thorough and sweeping study of the traveling fair, its architecture, amusements and personages through British history, from the viewpoint of a cultural & architectural historian who was interested in their preservation. A thoroughly enjoyable and detail-packed history of the English tober, which was fast disappearing as town after rural town sold off their best open spaces to developers and the age-old gaffs were housed-over.

Softcover. 9"x9.5", 195 pages, hundreds of black & white and several color illustrations, dust jacket. Light wear.
