Harness race at Wyandot County Fairgrounds
Description: Two horses during a harness race at the Wyandot County Fairgrounds. The first Wyandot County Fair was held in 1851 on the Thompson farm, (now the site of the Fairhaven Community on Marseilles Avenue) in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. The fair was held in that location until 1856 when the current fairgrounds site was purchased. Photograph by Harry Evan Kinley (1882-1969), a native of Upper Sandusky. Kinley was active in local events and organizations, and spent his professional career as a clerk at his father's department store, and later as a travelling salesman for the Marion Paper & Supply Company (1934-1962). He was also an avid lifelong photographer, and the bulk of the Harry Kinley Collection is comprised of glass plate negatives documenting the Kinley family, the city of Upper Sandusky and Wyandot County and surrounding areas.
