Wonderful World of Ohio
Description: Two photographs of the 1969 Ohio State Fair document activities in Natural Resources Park. The first photograph shows a lumberjack show, while the second is a group of fair-goers canoeing. The slides measure 2" x 2" (5.08 x 5.08 cm). The Ohio State Fair provides an important opportunity for farmers to promote their crops and livestock and to learn about advances in agricultural machinery. The first state fair was held in Cincinnati in 1850. In the ten years that followed, Newark, Sandusky, Zanesville and Cleveland hosted the fair, before it settled permanently in Columbus.
