NOTES: This image was almost certainly taken on the Gray familyÔÇÖs fairground in the Vale of Health, Hampstead Heath. During the 1930s Edwin Smith and his wife Olive Cook lived next to this site and knew the Gray family well. The ride shown is Fred GrayÔÇÖs set of Gallopers. This ride still exists and is part of the Thursford Collection at Fakenham in Norfolk
