EDITORS COMMENTS
Battersea Funfair A019815: A Night of Romance and Wonder at the Festival of Britain In this evocative photograph by Laurence Goldman, the magic of Battersea Funfair comes alive under the cover of night. The atmospheric scene is set against the backdrop of the iconic Battersea Power Station, its imposing structure bathed in the soft glow of floodlights. At the heart of the image, a couple stands transfixed in front of the trick fountains, their reflections dancing in the shimmering water. The playful jets of water, illuminated by the dusky twilight, create a mesmerizing display that seems to defy the laws of gravity. The Funfair, constructed as part of the Festival of Britain in 1951, was a symbol of post-war optimism and joy. The event brought a much-needed sense of excitement and wonder to the people of London, and the Funfair became a beloved destination for families and couples alike. As the sun sets and the fairground lights begin to twinkle, the air is filled with the sweet scent of popcorn and candyfloss, mingling with the sound of laughter and excitement. The couple in the photograph appear lost in their own world, their silhouettes framed by the sparkling fountains and the iconic power station. This photograph captures the essence of a special moment, a fleeting instant of romance and delight amidst the bustling fairground. The trick fountains, with their deceptive dance of water, serve as a reminder that magic and wonder can be found in the most unexpected places, even in the heart of a bustling city.
