Did Ely do the fair?
Yes, he did. And I'm told that was his sales booth on the left side of that postcard image. Can you spot him in the photo, Ben?
Ha! only took 5.5 years for someone answer that. Yes SAC, in the hat;)
p.s. Funny thing is that my Mom ( Ba), Eli's daughter, went on to become the marketing manager of the OC Fairgrounds most of the 80's. Small world.
p.s.s. the "Ely" was a joke for Sven
