This little van was originally built by the Yorkshire firm Southern & Co in 1942 for the northern showlady Queenie Smith. It has a lightweight chassis and solid steel wheels. Originally purchased from an advert in the showman's paper The World's Fair, the van has been a workhorse over the years with us, and has pretty much consistently housed one or more members of the family since it was bought in 1979. It had been used as an office in a breakers yard in County Durham for a number of years and was in need of a bit of TLC.
This van doesn't always travel with the fair.
