A variety of beef cattle breeds being shown at the Caribou Fair.Show Details
Established in 1913, the Caribou Fair Grounds and Trotting Park provided the area with facilities for an annual agricultural fair.
In 1922 Olof O. Nylander assembled a display of photographs, maps and charts of the Maine Swedish Colony which he displayed at the three hundredth anniversary of the founding of Gothenburg, Sweden. The series of display cards, or samlats, each featured several photographs of homes, businesses and community members from New Sweden, Woodland, Perham and Caribou.
This photograph is from samlat 18.
