Fall Festival in Worthington c. 1938
It was not Worthington yet. It was farm fields north-east of the Village of Worthington in 1938. The fall event was a corn husking.
Don O'Brien identifies the photo of the girls as "Fund Raising at Corn Husking Contest" on Flickr and says this was October 24, 1938. He says candy bars cost 5 cents.
He also identifies the event as taking place at the Walter Williams farm on Galena Road at the juncture with E. Wilson Bridge Road. Map - the intersection of Worthington Galena and E. Wilson Bridge Road today. There are businesses on the north-side of E. Wilson Bridge Road backing to 270 now. Wonder if there was a Huntley Road back then. East of the junction of Worthington Galena Road and E. Wilson Bridge is the Budweiser Brewery now.
Another photo from Mr. O'Brien of the 1938 Franklin County agricultural event is titled "Starting Gun at a Corn Husking Contest."
Visit Flickr for many more photos from the 1930s and 1940s shared by Dok1, Don O'Brien who grew up on W. Wilson Bridge Road. There is lots of Worthington history on his Flickr photostream. Many of Don O'Brien's photos are licensed with a Creative Commons license which allows commercial use.
