The George Wilson Collection

GWC344.jpg

George Wilson, an early graduate of Newport, spent two seasons in the early 1980s as a bingo caller in Cain’s Amusements on the seafront at Herne Bay, Kent. Whilst there he documented the often hidden activities, cultures and communities in this typical British arcade. George’s extraordinary collection is currently informing researchers into hitherto overlooked arcade cultures.
