During the 1920's and 1930's Walter Wilkinson toured his Punch and Judy show throughout England and the wider world. In this delightful little book he recounts his travels one summer through Yorkshire. After having journeyed from London via train he alights at Gainsborough before pulling his show north to Hull, then East to York and North to Richmond. Whenever a village green presents itself out comes the show to entertain the locals. A fascinating window onto a long forgotten past.
