Is this taken with Smallgains corner behind the vehicle, heading towards the Clockhouse?

Yes, we parked our cars at Smallgains, Prout and Hawks family to watch the carnival pass.

I remember this wonderful machine as the "Kursaal Flyer", an elaborate advertising device for the famous Southend amusement park and after which the band "Kursaal Flyers" was named.

An eight nines Senior Moment's error, should have headed it "The Kursaal Flyer", could not remember the name at the time. Thanks Tony

(I've changed it for you Ian)
