Old memories

A showman's family

These old photographs are old memories of my family.

Most of the people in these photos are still alive, but not all.

It was the 1940’s, my mum’s side of the family are showman in the showman’s guild, we are related to the family who started the guild.

I was born into a showmans family, it is really different to live our way instead of living in a house.

I live with my family in a mobile home, in Bricket Wood.

My nan travelled a lot with the fair when she was a child.

My family does not  travel around so much, we stay in Hertfordshire mostly but we work on the fetes.
