My god john Alan waiting for the top to come over conjurs memories up from 50 years ago ,won,t sleep tonight o
Yes, I remember The rattly old Caterpillar too. When the green top came over we were enveloped in a strage,underwater-like gloom, going round and round and up and down, and every so often a sudden, deliberate rush of wind would send the older girls' skirts blowing high over nylon stockings, causing much screaming and laughter!
I remember the Caterpillar too, lots of great fairground rides, The Waltzers, The sedate painted Horses & the one ride that terrified me was the thing with motorbikes fixed to the floor that got faster and faster, it went up & down as well ! Loved all the noise, lights & fun of Wigan Fair back in the late 40's, early 50's, candy floss machines, china stalls.....it was great
