"This booth has two giant pictures of boxers painted on boards either side of a red curtain."
As a result of tighter regulation, boxing booths are no longer a feature of touring fairgrounds. But previously they had been popular as far back as the Restoration. They generally attracted good crowds in the 1950s when local lads would take on the hard-bitten professionals.
These images come from the National Fairground Archive, which has also published a book by Vanessa Toulmin with a similar title to this story, A Fair Fight.
