What we see at a typical Town Fair: Milton, Delaware

06 Nov

Going through our pictures from the family’s recent vacation in the US, discovered we’ve got way more than we thought… Here are some images from our visit to a Fall Fair in historic Milton, DE:

History & HeritageTown of Milton

MILTON, only 7 miles from the Delaware Bay in a direct line but many more by the convoluted Broadkill, is one of the little old Delaware towns that prospered through shipbuilding and shipping in the 19 century. The shipyards have long ago disappeared from the foot of Union and Federal Streets… The business section displays a rare lot of the permanent store awnings, wood or metal roofed, that was used to shade the sidewalk in front of nearly every store in lower Delaware, but have disappeared from main streets. The old part of the town contains many old cypress-shingled houses characteristic of eastern Sussex County.” – From Delaware – A Guide to the First State, American Guide Series, 1938
