Now that's forward thinking!

On the left side of the house below the 666 for colds and fever sign is a lonely poster advertising the 1938 Fair Feb 4 to 15. Only a year in advance. Now that's planning!

[It's actually an old sign for the 1936 fair. -tterrace]

Stop or I'll Dazzle!

Is that a row of bottle caps nailed to the board bottom left of the house--a makeshift guardrail or just for show?

The sign they needed most?

Post no bills.

Royal American Shows

Once the largest Midway provider in North America with a 60 car train to transport the rides and various games and booths. Out of business by the 70's but my childhood remembers them well.

Black-Draught

Too graphic for my sensibilities!

Three Sixes for malaria?

Is that "Malaria" on the partially-obscured 666 (called "Three Sixes" in their radio ads) sign? I've always seen the "COLDS FEVER" signs, but I never heard them make a claim for curing malaria.

Also, I would be particularly interested in the dirt track racing at the Florida State Fair, but sadly, that was last year's (the 1936) fair.

Liv-o-Med

Looks like it took care of just about everything--even biliousness!

Any "colorizers" out there looking for a little something to do?
