Time Period

1936

Description

Image is of an enclosed room with quilts hanging on the walls, a spinning wheel, jars of preserves and other objects on trestle tables, exposed pipes and globe lights overhead, and three people examining objects on display as part of the Matanuska Valley fair. This image strongly appears to be of the 1936 fair rather than the one in 1937. Why the photographer numbered it in the 1937 sequence or identified it as 1937 is unknown.
