The original Glasgow Fair had been an important public event for centuries with many of its activities, including the sale of horses and cattle, and the hiring of servants, taking place at Glasgow Green.

It then attracted entertainment including tented theatres, circus acts and drinking booths.

The summer funfair is still held, and although the rides have been modernised, there will still be little girls waving at their parents as they go round, which is still very charming.

Probably cost a bit more than it did then, but no one claimed that progress would be cheap.
