Kathryn Nedd’s second book is a long, thorough, and entertaining history of the Marine Lake and Ocean Beach. It has 223 A5 format pages and includes 103 photographs, many in colour.
The story commences during the 1890s when the Marine Lake was first formed, and is followed through the heyday of the fairground right to the present day. The author was brought up surrounded by the fairground on all sides. As she grew older she spent the summers working on the fair, and is therefore able to provide a personal perspective on this way of life from fifty years ago at Marine Lake.
The book concludes with an album of more than fifty amusement park stalls, and rides and scenes. So much has gone into it that this book that it is bound to remain a defining work of history.
