Amazing Photos of the Massillon Street Fair in 1898

The Massillon Board of Trade sponsored a spectacular Merchants’ Street Fair in 1898 to feature local businesses. Many grocers, clothiers, manufacturers, and miscellaneous stores set up. There were side shows, performances, and raffles. Unfortunately a fire in several of the booths cut the celebration short.

These amazing photos from Massillon Museum were taken by Stan Baltzly, an amateur photographer that show the street fair in Massillon, Ohio in 1898.
