A Slow Day at the Louisiana State Fair …in 1975

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.
