Mom at State Fair


Mom would have been 97 today. I have some beautiful pictures of her through the years. This one was taken the same day as the picture of her riding the bear photograph, which is a classic. Notice the cigars for a nickel sign which help me date the photo.

“Stanford Newman said that cigars actually did retail for around five cents in the 1930s during the Great Depression; they were back up to 10 cents apiece again following the Second World War where we started to see brand names like Philly’s, White Owls and Dutch Masters.”
