|Notes / History||Steam Traction engine, Mitcham Fair. (1967)
By the 19th century, the soundtrack for the larger rides was provided by the fairground organ. These were powered by steam engines such as this splendid example, "Quo Vadis", owned by Edward Hines. You can just see the finely decorated organ, complete with moving figures, at the heart of this carousel.
