I love looking at the old Photos from the Library of Congress that they show of the life in America in the earlier part of the 20th century. There is a large number of the them on Flickr.
I remember growing up in a small town how exciting it was when the fair came to town.Our little town usually only had a couple of rides,games but lots of exhibits and of course the Fairest of the Fair beauty contest. I always liked to look at the exhibits and still do.The fair I attended growing up smelled like a combination of mustard and animals mainly because you had to go past the cow exhibit to get to the exhibit area.Lol. The highlight of the fair for most of us back when I was growing up was the prison rodeo. In MS during the 70's the state prison would allow inmates on good behavior to go to all the little fairs and have a rodeo. It was always lots of fun to watch.
I love the signs in the background of this photo on the wall. I would love to be the pain free woman or at least know the secrets of the pain free man depicted on the wall.
