EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of childhood joy and excitement. Taken at the 1988 Family Day at Laing Sports Ground in Elstree, Barnet, Greater London, it showcases a small child experiencing the "Best ride ever". The merry-go-round becomes a magical oasis for this young adventurer as they squeal with delight while spinning around. The event itself was filled with an array of attractions that made it truly memorable. From vintage car parades to helicopter rides, plate smashing to stalls offering various delights, there was something for everyone. Participants also engaged in friendly competition through an Its a Knockout style contest and tennis and six-a-side football tournaments. To kick off the festivities, John Conteh, former world light heavyweight champion, had the honor of opening the event. As day turned into evening, families gathered together to enjoy a delicious barbecue before dancing their hearts out on the disco floor. This print not only encapsulates the spirit of Laing Sports Ground's Family Day but also transports us back to a simpler time -the vibrant 1980s- when pure fun and unadulterated happiness were easily found on simple amusement rides like this merry-go-round. It serves as a nostalgic reminder of carefree days filled with laughter and cherished memories that will forever be etched in our hearts.
