Throwback Thursday: LACF in the 1930s

October 23, 2014

Having just ended the L.A. County Fair, we’re no strangers to food novelties–things like the Krispy Kreme double cheeseburger or the bacon-flavored cotton candy.

For the lucky few (1.4 million, to be exact) who journeyed…

Throwback Thursday

Whether you like it or not, Throwback Thursday is officially a thing. Every week Facebook, Twitter and particularly Instagram take the “tbt” hashtag by storm. We thought we would do a little throwback of our own back to the 1930s at the L.A. County Fair. As you can see, things were slightly smaller in scale.…
