Fairground attraction 1970’s

Back in the late 1970’s, I would wander around my home city of Birmingham, camera in hand.

At the time it was all Black-and-White work, self-developed and printed in a makeshift darkroom. I had different cameras to choose from, nothing exotic. I used twin lens reflex and 35mm. These images were from my 35mm camera probably on *400asa film hence the grain.
*(I must check as I have the original negatives somewhere)

The images below were from a sojourn to an impromptu fairground, many popped up like this around the city. This one appeared in Hay Mills, adjacent to the A45 near to Small Heath.
