Creator: Farrow, W. F.

This album contains photographs of the Kansas Free Fair in Topeka, Kansas. The Kansas State Fair Association was organized in 1880 with a representative from each county for the purpose of holding a statewide fair in Topeka. The first Kansas State Fair was held September 12-17, 1881. The Topeka fair became the Kansas Free Fair in 1915, then in 1958 the Mid America Fair, and in 1977 again was renamed to the Sunflower State Fair. The Shawnee County Fair continues to be held annually on the grounds, and the Kansas Expocentre, which opened in 1987 as a conference and event center, retains the remodeled Agricultural Hall, Heritage Hall, Livestock Pavilion and Exposition Hall (now known as Maner Conference Center) from the earlier fairgrounds. Many of these buildings are pictured in this album along with panoramic and interior views of the grounds, grandstands, arenas, tents, food stalls, parking lots and Ferris wheel; the Old Soldiers Reunion; G.A.R Reunion; troops from Ft. Leavenworth and Ft. Riley; parades and bands; horse and auto racing; woman pilot Katherine Stinson; the farmerettes; exhibitions of art work, quilts, livestock, cakes, stills confiscated during prohibition, commercial goods and government services; Cho-Cho the Health Clown, a Baby Clinic and Eugenics Clinic; 4-H and Boys and Girls club events; cow-milking and spelling contests; fireworks, and the fairgrounds covered in snow.
