Sydney Race, from his early teens, kept an irregular journal in which he wrote about his fascination with the amusements Nottingham had to offer. The annual Goose Fair where Race first saw moving pictures, visits from tenting circuses and portable theatres, freak shows which established themselves briefly in empty shops, and the Theatre Royal, where he saw Henry Irving and Ellen Terry.
