1 pointHow about a section dedicated to non guild Showmen ,where ever you go except for Carters their is very little mention of Non guild operators, they occasionally get a mention but few and far between. Some like Bonds I believe who operate a Victorian style fair around surrey area almost never get a mention or Stanley Freeman ,both operate some great looking transport as well . Just a idea ,and I wont copy write it either ! Some sad people out their .
