Recommended Posts

Relations of the late John Farrar are putting a book together about this well known Sheffield funfair operator and wondered if anyone has and photographs or stories to tell about when Farrar's (not Whiting's who visited here in the 80's) used to visit Owlerton believed to be in the 1960's.
