This is the last of 18 such Showmans Engines purchased new by Tom Whiteleg of Whitelegs Fair. It was new in 1948. Robbie Richards bought and restored it in 1965. It generated electricity for many of the amusements in the fairground, dodgems, the merry go round and other fairground entertainment. Whitelegs Fair travelled around Southern England. this generator vehicle was a real classic in its day and still is. It meant the fairground could be set up and remain self sufficent for electrical supply.
