It's been a bit of a while since I last posted on here, because I've been very busy working on this new website for Carters Steam Fair.
I started working on it back in July, visiting the fair wherever it was working at the weekends and taking photos, and asking the very patient Carter family tons of questions about stuff that they do every day – things that to us are extraordinary. It's been a bit of a labour of love, learning as much as I could so I could write it, design it and illustrate it with as much knowledge as you can glean about a whole family's lifetime in a few months!
Carters Steam Fair is the largest and most authentic travelling vintage fairground in the world, operating, restoring and travelling a large number of vintage rides and equipment with a fleet of classic lorries, while living in traditional showman's wagons.
They're passionate, friendly, welcoming and dedicated, and hugely knowledgeable about the history of fairgrounds in Britain, as well as being immensely skilled artists in their own right. It's been a huge pleasure working with them... if you find yourself in London, the Home Counties, Somerset or Kent during the Carters season, pay them a visit and have yesself some fun!
