This photo was taken in 1909, looking west from the south end of the Agriculture Building. The Administration Building is in the background between the trees. People picnicking under the trees are enjoying the afternoon. Fairgoers of this era were fashionably dressed. The women wore long dresses, men wore suits, and many were wearing a hat. It doesn’t look like it would have been very comfortable on hot fair days!
