Late 1950’s this pic is of the bus terminal at the Danbury Fair in Connecticut. The Fair ran from 1822 when it started out as an agricultural gathering until 1981 when it closed. It was huge with 100 to 200 thousand people attending each year. Transport facilities must have been quite a logistical challenge.
The image was very blurred, skew and with very dark corners, but I love the old cars, profile of the signs, flapping flags, and allure of the far-off tents. The light – glinting off the chrome and the muddy rain puddles – convinced this was worth the effort.
