You Can Almost Smell the Pine…

Until the early 1920’s the Erie County Fair was held in September which accounts for the long skirts and coats being worn in this 1903 image of the Midway. You can almost smell the scent of pine as the towering, hundred year old trees created a canyon effect. The structure on the left would be moved to a number of different locations on the Fairgrounds and today is known as the Mount Vernon Building located in Slade Park.
