Fairground organ, Bents Park, South Shields

Fairground Organ

I had been cleaning out some old files and folders, rearranging etc. when I came across this one in my archives. It was taken at the Tyne Wear Run for vintage commercial vehicles last year which ended for a rally in the Bents Park, South Shields, and I thought you would like to see it, besides the weather was so good today I deliberately set about looking for pictures from last summer! This is a detail from German steam powered fairground organ, and she played superbly too, with all of the characters animated, I only wish I’d shot some video.

Don’t worry, I was out and about shooting some new material today as well, hopefully you will see some nice looking landscapes soon.

  2. This looks fantastic – it’s in amazing condition. I always think the figures on these kind of things look a bit spooky..
