Some people must have a tangible memento of places visited, others prefer photos, and still others are content to make memories. While memories may wash away like footprints in the sand, photos and souvenirs can live on long after you’ve gone.

Unfortunately, we do not know any more about Helen and Mathilda’s trip to the Indiana State Fair together on September 8, 1909, beyond the fact that they picked up this post card for Herm Bense of Columbus, Indiana.

Relics of past Indiana State Fairs (and the current one) are always fascinating. Check out all manner of remnants from 160+ years of Indiana State Fairs.
