LOOKING DOWN ON LOOKING BACK -
Welcome to the grand opening parade for the 1955 Otero County Fair. Back
then the parade route went the reverse direction from today. At left, the
parade is coming north up New York Avenue, passing the Spudnut Shop. At
right, the parade has turned right, heading east down 10th Street. It was
Sept. 15, and on the marquee of the Mesa Theater is the movie "Wagon Wheels,"
starring Randolph Scott. The second feature was "Snow Creature". On the
right of the photo is the County Courthouse, under construction. These
aerial photos were taken by Sam Blackwell, who at the time was photographer
for Bell Aircraft at Holloman. He now lives in Eugene, Ore.
