Notes / History Mitcham fair (1906), showing one of the popular side events, a 20 foot board with a bell at the top. The idea was to hit a wooden peg at the bottom with a large mallet sending a gong to the top to make the bell ring.

Particularly popular with men trying to show off their strength to impress.
