It’s Time For The Fair: Post Cards Of Past Fairs

Fall Festival Post Card

During the early 1900s, post cards were a very popular means of communication, so it’s not surprising that we have several featuring DeKalb County’s fall fair. Some of these cards were silly, picture post cards of absurdly large (and obviously fake) vegetables. Others simply depicted scenes from the fair, which were often sent to pen pals to give them a glimpse of Auburn. A few cards were probably intended to as actual advertisements for the event, such as the “All Are Interested” card pictured here.

About Katy

Some of the books I've recently come to love include Signal To Noise by Silvia Moreno-Garcia, The Just City by Jo Walton, Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead, and Bug In A Vacuum by Melanie Watt. I'm a firm believer in the power of the Oxford comma.
