Your right nothing was free about the fair, however, it was fun place to go. I went to St Michaels on 48th and Damen back in the 50's. We went everyday. I loved the nutty butty ice cream bars. I won my goldfish there and he lived for almost 7years. I remember the Little Dipper Roller Coaster. My cousin won the best of show with his Ardail dog. Joe Meegan was a great politician who lived on 54th and Damen. he attended most of the function in the Yards. Good old times.
