Carter's Steam Fair

This photograph was not taken a hundred years ago, but on Saturday at Carters Steam Fair, to quote fromteh website: "Carters is the result of John Carters passion for collecting old and interesting items, discarded by the owners, as being too unfashionable or too derelict to preserve. Over the last thirty years a whole funfair has been collected, complete with historic vehicles to transport it from site to site". If you get the chance, do go and vist, you will enjoy it I promise you. (Unfortunately, it didn't help that it was chucking it down with rain at the time I was there)

Here is the Londonist report of the event.

Yes... And you made the sepia colour, so that it seems to be an ancient photo or postcard. Hmm ! Hmm!

Beautiful sepia tone! Agree with perle, it looks like an old postcard!

It's a very beautiful image, does look like a picture of the 19th century...only better. Congratulations, Ham!

Well, I have actually been on the merry-go-round of Carter's Fair and it is a great deal of fun as well as being very beautiful. Not just a bit of nostalgia. Good stuff Ham.
