  • Abstract

    Harry Adams talks about buying a Broadside at Bridgewater Fair ‘She was a poor hedger’s daughter the pride of the green’, the acts at the fair, the upside down girl [contortionist], the fat lady, the dancing girls ‘young chaps all round there, mouths open and eyes’ and the boxing ring.
