Well, it’s Lorain County Fair Week! And since last Friday’s post featured one of cartoonist Gene Patrick’s “Passing Scene” cartoons, today’s post appropriately highlights more of his artwork, this time with a Lorain County Fair theme.
It’s a special header he designed for the Lorain Journal that ran on Monday, August 21, 1967 – 50 years ago today. And as a bonus, he also scored another cartoon on that same front page.
It’s the Erie-Huron County edition of the paper (remember when there were multiple editions of the Journal?) and it includes sad news of a drowning in Berlin Heights, as well as other news items from Norwalk and Wakeman.
