  1. Last week of the fair.

    Well. Lets go back 50 years to this day. This is the last week of the fair. This next Sunday it will be over. October 17. And then the sad demo will start..
  2. To all the fair lovers. Thinking that at this time 50 years ago. the fair was in its second season. IT is now late Summer and the fair is about over for good. After the closing the demo is going to start. Also how I wish I could take a backhoe and start digging were the GM building was to see what may be underground . I never could understand how they build something that nice and then tear it down...
  3. Because the building had a boiler room. The prints show one. I would think they had a water chiller for the building A/C . That must be a cooling tower for the chiller. Also the other items may have been for the kitchen and or dining room needs..
  4. Love getting to see inside that bulding Glad to get to see inside that building when it was new..
  5. Well it's mid October now . The weather starting to get cold in New York now. And the gates for the first season are about to close. Just thinking back now 50 years..
