State Fair through the ages

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.
