Who doesn't like a good fireworks show?

Bill, this is another remarkable photograph.  It's powerful in its simplicity.  The black and white is just perfect; I don't believe it would even work in color.  It speaks to me about the wonder of the Fair fifty plus years after it was snapped.

Hi Bill,

Again, not a Fair structure in sight and a remarkable image. It is the expressions in the peoples faces that shows the Fair best. Like that little Indian boy photo with his dad or uncle. Wonderful.

 

Edit to add: I guess that hat does count as a Fair structure!

On second thought, after a (true) 1939 Zombie and a few minutes hang out under the Bridge of Wings I would agree with you. The photo is also strange because the feather perfectly echoes the curve of the ladies head. Great contrast with her expression (perhaps a Zombie was to blame in 1964...).
