EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the vibrant atmosphere of the Oxford Fair held in 1907. Standing tall amidst St Giles, we are greeted by the magnificent sight of The Collins Helter Skelters, their colorful spirals reaching towards the sky. As if frozen in time, this snapshot captures a moment when excitement filled the air and laughter echoed through the streets. A large crowd has gathered outside these thrilling fairground attractions, eagerly awaiting their turn for an exhilarating ride down those twisting slides. Men, women, and children alike can be seen donning their finest attire as they immerse themselves in this recreational spectacle. Their faces reveal a mix of anticipation and joy, mirroring the timeless allure that fairs have always held. Henry Taunt's keen eye for detail allows us to appreciate not only the grandeur of these structures but also provides a glimpse into early 20th-century leisure activities. This photograph transports us back to a simpler era where amusement was found in simple pleasures like attending local fairs with loved ones. As we gaze upon this remarkable image from Historic England's collection, we are reminded of how our ancestors sought solace and entertainment during times gone by. It serves as a testament to our shared human desire for recreation and reminds us that even today, amidst modern advancements, there is still something magical about stepping into a world where fun reigns supreme.
