STUDTS OF SOUTH WALES - The Remarkable History of a Fairground Family
Home > STUDTS OF SOUTH WALES - The Remarkable History of a Fairground Family
Kevin Smith & Stephen Smith
The Studt family of South Wales were amongst the earliest presenters of amusements to the public at fairs and gathering in Great Britain in the 19th century.
From hand turned machinery travelled by horses they were very early in the field of lapping steam to the propulsion of their rides and for haulage purposes.
Their earliest manually propelled rides featured hand turned mechanical organs, and though the following years they were to prove innovators in the field of mechanical music, being the first to have fair organs operated by cardboard book music, and later by paper rolls.
Over the years they operated over forty steam road engines, and were in the forefront o changing to more modern diesel powered vehicles in the 1930s.
