The Great State Fair of Texas  An Illustrated History, Wiley, Nancy
10 The Great State Fair of Texas An Illustrated History
Wiley, Nancy
Taylor Publishing 1985 0878334653 / 9780878334650 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Foreword by A. C. Greene. Fairs are as American as flags, moms and apple pies says the author. This is the previously untold story of one of the nation's biggest, best-known and longest-running expositions ... The story of The Great State Fair of Texas, the one of a kind, 100-year-old annual celebration revered by native Texans and considered an obligatory rite of passage for newcomers to the Lone Star State. A. C. Greene in his forword points out that the Fair has survived and will continue to thrive into the 21st century and beyond because it is FUN. So is the book. An engaging mix of history, humor and human interest combined with a remarkable collection of more than 300 rare photographs. Lots of pictures of Big Tex before he burned up in 2012 at age 60. But never fear, a new Big Tex was built 3-feet taller and was unveiled in 2013. DJ price-clipped. Otherwise like new. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 244 pages; 30954
