Runaway Fair

Runaway Fair

1920 when this vehicle from Crow’s fair ran away down Mill Bank, penty of people there to give advice. Vehicles running backwards down Mill Bank was a common occurance many years ago.

Peter Turvey has advised: ”This photo shows a very rare Showman’s road locomotive – one of the few traction centre engines built. They could act as the centre of a set of gallopers (a type of roundabout) as well as haul loads on the r0ad.”

Thanks to Peter for that update.
