Old Photograph Fairground Market Cupar Fife scotland

Old photograph of the Fairground and Market in Cupar, Fife, Scotland. The majority of fairs held in the United Kingdom trace their ancestry back to charters and privileges granted in the Medieval period. In the thirteenth century, the creation of fairs by royal charter was widespread, with the Crown making every attempt to create new fairs and to bring existing ones under their jurisdiction.
