A PAINTED FAIRGROUND PANEL BY EDWIN HALL,
c.1930s/1940s, depicting a smiling British soldier, from the tank regiment.
W 120 cm  x H 128cm

Edwin Hall is widely considered as one of the greatest fairground artists of the 20th century, along with Fred Fowle, who described Hall as 'the finest showman's decorator there ever was'. Throughout the last one hundred and fifty years or so, travelling funfairs have perfectly captured the British appetite for uninhibited pleasure-seeking. By the end of the nineteenth century, fairs had become a feature of the holiday calendar in both town and country, and the Industrial Revolution, along with other technical advancements of the 20th century, gave rise to new and exciting rides such as the Whip and the Caterpillar, and transformed the classic waltzer and dodgems.
