The Merry-Go-Round

The credit for this photo goes to the late Derick Johnson. Does anyone recall where the fair was situated? Crown Farm Colliery can be seen on the left in the back ground.

Who are the people?

  • Further to my first comment I’ll add that the scene can appear much older than it actually is. The large white building in the top left is the wash plant at Crown Farm, apparently not completed until 1953!

  • If the colliery is indeed Crown Farm the fairground could be on the (now) Forest Town welfare sports ground or the allotments just below?
