While waiting for your images from the State Fair, we are occupying ourselves with a trip back in time, browsing the Minnesota Historical Society's collection of State Fair photos.
Machinery Hill in 1913...
If some enterprising person set up a logrolling "ride" today, it'd be the talk of the Fair...
Nothing says "contentment" like a man and his prize-winning celery...
In 1935, the fat woman/fat men exhibition wasn't on the street...
How good were the times in 1947? The war was over, dad was home, and there was nobody to tell you what's in a hot dog.
1975. Surely the human corkscrew is still alive. I need to find him and find out what he's doing now.
We're waiting for your reports and photos from this year's Fair.
