Title : Olga Rich - Hoppings

Description : Olga Rich at her 'Mickey Mouse' juvenile ride at the Hoppings. 1940's The Hoppings is a popular fair in the North East of England, held in the last full week of June every year on Newcastle's Town Moor, spanning around 40 acres of land. The Hoppings started out as a Temperance Festival in 1882, when Newcastle Temperance organisations decided to revive the annual gatherings that they had previously held, but included different festivities to coincide, to counter-attract the 'Summer Race Meeting' at Gosforth Park, which was seen as a source of drunkenness. It proved to be a great success and the fair is still being enjoyed to this very day. Ref: TWAS:944/2437 (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.
