This album has Catone family photos taken at the Great Danbury State Fair in Danbury CT, photos from my childhood in Danbury, and other photos having to do with the Danbury of my youth. I was born in Danbury in 1950, and lived there until 1973. The Great Danbury State Fair was Connecticut's State Fair from 1869-1981. It ran for ten days in October, and the Friday of that week was "Fair Day" for all Danbury school children, who had the day off, and were given a free pass to attend. The Fair was one of a kind...a mixture of carnival, circus, theme park, and old country fair(oxen pulls, the Big Top with grand prize winners in agriculture, and the most tantalizing food and beverages). Every old Danburian wishes it were still in existence.
