The rectangular hand painted fairground sign designed to draw in the crowds at fairgrounds in the mid twentieth century, exclaiming ‘100 Smiles Per Hour’ painted on a sunshine yellow ground.
Suspended from two corner holes, the panel originally had a red border which is lacking and has paint flaking to several areas, mainly to the right hand side of the sign, and scuffs commensurate with age (it was of course part of a travelling troupe) but structurally it is sound.
The wording suggests this sign was advertising for a spinner or coaster attraction, let us at least assume a ride with some real movement.
A decorative gem encompassing all the fun of the fair.
