This one was the result of a great deal too much brown paint. I had wanted to do the tent for a long time and came across the stalls in some early photos of the Murray Bridge Show. It was originally planned as a reworking of Fence and Fairground with a fence in front, but the Humpty Dumpty was too strong to hide in the background. Then I used neither the original Humpty nor the original lettering. I wanted him to be gleeful. The girl throwing balls is also great deal angrier.

I have used the pony in Broken Window and Photos $2 but he also became darker.
