Thrills at the Fair

 

0394.28

A Spirit River car salesman performed a spectacular stunt at the fair in 1938. I think even by today’s standards, this would be thrilling to see. I remember something similar at a July 1 Sports Day in the late 1950s, and it was pretty exciting, but it wasn’t a local person. I think that would add to the experience.
