California State Fairgrounds (demolished) – Sacramento CA

Description

The California State Fair was established at this location in 1909. The WPA worked on the site during the 30s, most likely on the 75 acre expansion of the grounds in 1937. The fair, however, has since moved to a new location, and there does not appear to be much left of the original site.
