I do look forward to when Carter’s Steam Fair rolls into town. A travelling funfair firmly inspired by Victorian sideshows and vintage attractions, it’s always a a feast for the eyes — but I’m far too scared to go on any of the rickety rides! I just amuse myself playing on the arcade machines, watching Josh in the shooting galley, and taking photos of all the dreamy retro signage. (Sorry for the slightly over-wrought ~vintage~ Photoshop grading effects, I couldn’t help myself.)
A few more photos on Flickr.
Some bonus snaps of sweet signage on the old shop facades around the Chatsworth Road area.
