Fair Grounds in Winfield, KS

Winfield Fair Grounds

Pictures from Bob Lawrence

The bottom photo is one of my favorite old Winfield pictures. It was taken of the Winfield fairgrounds from the top of the smoke stack at the old Winfield electric plant and is said to be postmarked in 1910 although I haven't removed it from the album to check that out for sure. Note the old mill in the background. Someone had climbed the smoke stack and taken this picture looking off to the northeast. That was pretty brave considering that smoke stack collapsed in the 1930's killing one man.
Bob Lawrence, Feb. 11, '00.
