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. This photo shows a broken light tower. It has fallen on a ride called the Looper, which also received a lot of damage. The Loopers scenery was been torn off and many of the poles which held it are bent.
