Aug. 21, 1967 – Journal Front Page With Lorain County Fair Art

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.
