Notes / History Army cadet Brian Blake tests his strength on a punch-ball, at Mitcham Fair in 1956.

Local fairs often included machines
of this type. The sideshows also included boxing tents, where local men could enter the ring and try
to beat the showground contender, in return for a cash prize.
