75 Years Ago This Week posts began March 1, 1938 - my mother and father were preparing to get married later in the month. I'm continuing this meme, from time to time, as issues warrant.
Over in The KINNICK Project blog this week we posted a series of daily entries regarding Mom and Dad's trip to the Iowa State Fair - 75 years ago this week, starting here at they prepared for the trip.
I was surprised to see that they took and stayed in a tent on the camping grounds adjacent to the fairgrounds proper.
On August 27th, they visited the livestock pavilion and ate at "a stand."
August 28th was the auto races in the afternoon; they left the fair and attended a movie; before driving home - and seeing friends who had also been to the fair.
I posted one more day, August 29th, just because it was a funny entry…
Families are forever! ;-)
