I wonder what ever happened to it. It would turn up in Birkenhead once a year in the early 60's. The atmosphere was fantastic. All the best music of the time was played non stop. I can hear Gene Vincent singing 'She Little Sheila' and The Marcels' 'Blue Moon' blaring out even now. Great place to get fixed up as there were girls galore and you could always pose by hanging off the waltzer to impress. Usually a big fight would start but who cared. Those were the days.

They still going strong! Done quite bit of work for them on the rides.
They had the big fair at the waste ground on the four bridges site earlier in the year!
They travel and got large workshops/depot where they repair and maintain the rides out in Cheshire.

When they came to bromborough common it was always a riot with birkenhead scooter boys, eastham boot boys and ellesmere port raging a riot on my door step.
One night i got caught in an alley and they kicked the s,,,, out of me.

Personally not the best time of my life
