During the 1940s Barbara Jones set about documenting this everyday art throughout Britain, visiting fairgrounds, tattoo parlours, taxidermists, houseboats, high street shops, seaside piers and amusement arcades. She befriended people who lived afloat on redundant canal-ways and studied the way they decorated their boats. Her journey was an epic undertaking and her achievement remains ground-breaking.
