Peter Mitchell photographed Francis Gavan and his Ghost Train ride many times over the years. The images stretch from the early 1970s to the 2010s. His images chart the many incarnations of the ride, as pieces were added, removed, repaired and repainted. It lived for the largest part of its life on Woodhouse Moor, Leeds, later moving to Pottery Fields. Mitchell's images of Gavan and his Ghost Train are bound with meaning, from memories of youthful fun to the fleeting nature of man and his creations, with the enduring relationship between subject and photographer linking the images through the decades.

This late image of the series shows the Ghost Train long past its former glory, its bright colours dimmed and ghoulish face rusted. Still its caretaker, Gavan, smiles at the camera.

Francis Gavan passed away in 2019 aged 79 years.
