Rare color photos document the festivities at a 1941 state fair


First held in 1846, the Rutland State Fair in Rutland, Vermont is one of the oldest state fairs in the United States.

With agricultural exhibitions, races, and rides, the fair drew massive crowds each year from around New England and New York, eventually being renamed the Vermont State Fair in 1972.

In 1941, Farm Security Administration photographer Jack Delano documented the festivities at the fair in Rutland, even springing to shoot a few rolls in color.
