• Short Summary

    Good footage of people having fun on rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

  • Description

    No titles.

    Blackpool, Lancashire.

    Various quick shots of fast and furious rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach - roller coasters, spinning cars and roundabouts. Signs advertising freak shows at the fairground - "See The Giant Rat - Alive".

    General shots of people wandering around the funfair. More rides, including the Ferris Wheel, aeroplanes suspended from a roundabout and numerous spinning car-type things that are still seen in fairs today. Good stuff. More shots on the 'switchback' (roller coaster), including several point of view shots.
