In honor of the State Fair (which I'm attending today!) here are some pictures from the North Carolina State Archives. I love to look at these photos! They're so interesting. I couldn't find any pictures of the actual fair though, so the pig will have to suffice. It's crazy to see photos of places that I recognize and see how different they are now, like this photo of the Capital Building from 1925.
Major apologies for the total lack of outfit posts; it's fall break, I haven't had too many outfits going on. I promise one by tomorrow! And look forward to the film that Avery and I just got back.
