UNDER THE ELECTRIC SKY: THE LEGACY OF THE BILL LYNCH SHOWS., Walsh, Christopher A.

Author Name    Walsh, Christopher A.

Title   UNDER THE ELECTRIC SKY: THE LEGACY OF THE BILL LYNCH SHOWS.

Publisher    Pottersfield, Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia, 2010.

Seller ID   25518

158 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 9781897426173 B&w photographs, reproductions. "(T)akes readers on a thrilling ride through the strange and fabled history of the Bill Lynch Shows, from its modest beginnings on McNab's Island in Halifax Harbour to t he successful, tumultuous years criss-crossing the countryside to its current incarnation struggling along dark Maritime highways today. This is one of the most curious stories of this region's past, one never completely understood and, until now, never told in its entirety. The Bill Lynch Shows would breeze into small Maritime towns after dark, packed with enough electricity and magic to illuminate the imaginations of anyone who stepped foot on the midway for the brief while it played thei r town. For many, itst return after a long winter made summer official. The shows became entrenched in the collective psyche, at once the centre of earthly thrills and some of the greatest acts of charity ever witnessed in the region. Clarence ' So ggy' Reid continued the enterprise in the same manner, until the death of a man on the carnival lot in Port Hawkesbury threatened to destroy the dream forever. Walsh chronicles the true story of the Maritime carnival with unflinching detail, wea vin g flashes of the carnival's captivating past with a first-hand account of life on the carnival lot today." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor rubbing. Near Fine
