Danbury Fair Fun

November 17

The Great Danbury State Fair in Connecticut was a huge event, fondly remembered by the many who attended every year. It began in 1822 and the last one was in 1981. After that everything was sold off and it was replaced in 1986 with a yucky shopping mall called the Danbury Fair Mall. This photograph was taken in 1958.

This was a fair amount of work. I needed to rebuild the sky and this involved a lot of tricky selections. It was worth it knowing that scene depicted has ceased to exist except in amateur photographs.
