The Louisiana State Fair, in Shreveport, is getting ready for another season. October 25 is their opening day. While going through old negatives this morning, I came across some film taken at the October 1975 fair. It was rainy day, giving fair workers little to do. Some, I was happy to notice, spent their time reading newspapers. Others just smoked cigarette after cigarette. I found their moods interesting 43 years ago. The same holds true today. Good old b/w Tri-X film might’ve helped with the moodiness. Except for the “What Is It?” photo, these images are newly-edited. It’s fun to look back in time and see something new.
