Early Carnival Futuristic Auto Hand-Painted Rounding Board


Fantastic early hand-painted carnival rounding board with a race car of the future. Likely made by Spooner in the United Kingdom. This would have been one of a series of panels that would be installed around the upper part of the ride. Please see photos for paint condition. Email with any questions about condition. We have two other panels from the same carnival ride. Both with great automobile related subject matter.
