New Council House (Guildhall), Old Market Square, Salisbury: perspective view with a market taking place

Taylor, Sir Robert (1714-1788)
NOTES: The 'New Council House' was designed by Sir Robert Taylor and completed in 1795 following the destruction of the previous 'Old Council House' in 1780.

Helter skelter and roundabout, Hampstead, London

NOTES: This image was almost certainly taken on the Gray family’s 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 painter Stanley Spencer was also a neighbour and he painted a picture of the helter-skelter in the photograph, that is now part of the Graves Art Gallery collection at Sheffield. The ride in the foreground of the photograph was Fred Gray’s set of Gallopers. This ride still exists and is part of the Thursford Collection at Fakenham in Norfolk.
