1908 Feast

Charles Thurston brought this Feast to Rushden in 1908. The ride at the top of the picture was made by Barker & Thurston of Norwich. It has some six seater motors for the riders to sit inside, with panels around the canopy "....tors Barker and Thurston Tours."
The middle ride is a "Nonpareil Easy Riding Pony Circus" and the one in the foreground has "Pip-Pip - G. Hearn's Grand Juvenile .... " around the canopy.
The side shows probably included a bioscope, boxing booth, and hoop-la.
