This is the Blackgang Chine Bazaar at the Isle of Wight’s Blackgang Chine Amusement Park. Alexander Dabell established the amusement park in 1843, making it one of the oldest (or perhaps the oldest) amusement park in the United Kingdom. In 1842 a huge fin whale had been stranded off the Needles. Dabell bought it at auction, sold off the blubber, had the bones bleached, and transported across the island to a specially built hut.
