Full image caption

Caravan belonging to workers from the travelling fun fair held at Hampstead heath in August 1955. A weekly fair was held here as well as the more popular and larger Bank Holiday Fairs held at Easter, spring and late summer. Thousands of Londoners travelled to Hampstead Heath to attend these fairs. The fairground workers would have set up the rides, managed them whilst the fair was open, then dismantled them, clearing up afterwards leaving the Heath as they had found it and moving on to set up the fair in another town.
