funfair tiger


5 October 1983, Great Britain
British Fairs – Big Wheel, Helter Skelter and Performing Animals
design: Andrew Restall

I found one more and the last ‘tiger on stamp’ – in an amusement park. This is an interesting assembly of attractions. Exotic animals (well, sorry for their captivation..), Merry-go-round, hot air balloon, big wheel and a steam traction engine – a big contrast to the fun-fairs which I see locally, which are formed by bad taste, noisy and flashy temporary rides.

I am a fan of early steam vehicles and googled if any “Steam Show” is still on – and yes, they are touring!
