Title The May Fair setting up in Swindon
Description Black and white photograph - Not Hereford! This photograph shows Robert Edwards & Sons of Swindon building up their Dodgem track at the Cotwolds town of Stow-on-the-Wold. This family of showmen, famous for their distinctively-signwritten vehicles, attended both of this Gloucestershire town’s two annual chartered fairs, in May and October. This photograph would appear to have been taken at the May Fair, probably around 1955.
