Notes

Summary:
The golden anniversary of the Missouri State Fair was marked with a tragedy when the fairgrounds were hit by a tornado at 1:20 a.m. on August 20. The storm centered on the midway area and a carnival employee was killed. Despite suffering extensive damage to all 60 permanent buildings on the fairgrounds, totaling almost $700,000, the fair was back in operation the following evening. Photo shows the remains of a ‚"Derby Horse Race‚". This was a group game. People sat in front of the board with the horses and moved their horse toward the finish line by shooting balls into holes with the machine which is shown, much like a pin ball machine.
