Photographs from the California citrus trade show from 1913.
he National Orange Show Festival is an annual festival held in San Bernardino County, California since 1911 to promote the citrus industry; . At its popularity between 1960 to the mid-1980s, the event ran a full two weeks during the month of March and featured displays from most counties in California. The show was cancelled for five years, from 1942 to 1946, due to World War 2Due to a changing economic environment, the show has been downsized considerably with a local community emphasis, instead of a national or state one, and is now a weekend event.
Now it is Actually a flea market.
My home city is represented with a display advertising the great road race around grand avenue.
This color image is from the web all others are original photographs that I found at the Long beach flea market in the summer of 2013
