HOOK-A-DUCK

This little hoopla stall is arguably one of the finest surviving examples of master-decorator Fred Fowle's paintwork on a sidestall left. It was bought by John Carter from a showman many years ago. Originally the Darts Game, it now holds that famous fairground staple, Hook-a-Duck.

It underwent an overhaul in 2010, and the trellises along the top were remade, skinned in aluminium and repainted to match the originals. Unfortunately a lot of the paintwork on vintage fairground rides of the 50s and 60s was on plywood which delaminates over time, rendering it unrepairable. Luckily we specialise in vintage artwork, so we are best placed to replicate the original masterpieces as closely as possible.
