DICK'S FIRST AGE & WEIGHT STAND

Sorry for the poor picture quality but it's a polaroid shot.
I sure wish it was sharper. That's Johnny Walker standing next to his popcorn wagon.
Alice was inside.
As I recall this picture was taken at a Catholic Church Feast in upstate NY.

We were booked with Bartosik Bros Rides out of Ansterdam, NY

Also there was Johnny Walker with his Popcorn.

I beleive the year was around 1980.
