New poster checking in.
I only spent two summers in the business, 1975 working a jenny for the old Gooding Amusement Co. and 1976 working a balloon water race game for Walter Cox on the James E. Strates Shows. Now retired and going to as many fairs and carnivals as time and money (and Wuhan Flu) will allow.

welcome aboard! Worked for show here in the southeast for several years, helped move a 2 abreast a few times, and would give breaks.

Used to jump on the platform while running (LOL can't do that now) and watch the world go by.

Gooding's had about 12 units out that year, I think all were 3 - abreast Allen Herschells like the one I was on (Unit #3). It was over 20 years old then.
Had a REAL Band Organ, all of his did. I don't think any traveling show has one now.
