Circus, Fairs and Markets in the 1970s Through Fascinating Black and White Photos

Fair, temporary market where buyers and sellers gather to transact business. A fair is held at regular intervals, generally at the same location and time of year, and it usually lasts for several days or even weeks. Its primary function is the promotion of trade.

Circus, fairs and markets in Melbourne, Australia in the late 1970s

Historically, fairs displayed many different kinds of products in specific commodity or industrial groupings. The older specialty fair evolved into the more modern trade show. Participation in contemporary trade shows is confined to exhibitors representing one industry or even just specialized segments of an industry.

These fascinating black and white photos were taken by Simon Nowicki that show circus, fairs and markets in Melbourne, Australia in 1977 and 1978.
