Good photos Ed. This one reminds me that we also wore our boots at fairgrounds. Before we went regularly to pubs we always went to fairgrounds, when they were in town. Again there was camaraderie between different groups and generally we had a good time. Our enemies were the fairground workers and trouble usually broke out if a fairground man took liberties with one of the local girls.They were men and we were boys but we had the numbers on our side.I remember trouble at the Kursal Southend (twice) Dagenham Park (twice) and Barking Park 1970 when a rumour went around that the Mile End mob were going to burn the fairground down. The police also heard the rumour so it didn't happen. A mass brawl did occur with the police supporting the Fairground workers. I ended up getting a good hiding from two men whilst a policeman looked on. I earned a lot respect from the Mile End boys, on my return to Barking station, but it was really a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
