Time Travel: Fireman's Fair Heavily Used Concession Stand and Iconic Downtown Clarksburg Retailer

By Dick Duez on July 07, 2019 from History Blog via Connect-Bridgeport.com

For years, the Bridgeport Fireman's Fair was one of the most anticipated events in the city and this concession stand provided many patrons with food and drink as part of the enjoyment. Sitting in front of the building is an old city Chevrolet emergency car. If you have any memories of the Fair, the concession stand or even the emergency car share them in the comment section below.
This decades-old photo shows when Woolworth was located on East Main Street in Clarksburg and was one of many retail stores that called the city's downtown home for years. Anyone know any of the individuals shown here?
