IMAGES OF THE PAST The South Dakota State Fair - SDPB Television travels through time with a program based on rare video footage of the 1912 State Fair in Huron. Images of the Past The South Dakota State Fair takes us back a century, to a time when people dressed up for the Fair and our agricultural roots were a far larger part of South Dakota life. The 17 minutes of silent video included in the program reveals culture and lifestyles of the past. The film was provided by the South Dakota State Historical Society. We’ll learn how the historic film was discovered, look at some of the same locations a century later and see some vintage photographs, as well.

Tip for viewing an imbedded player. Try the following to reduce pixilation when enlarging the video. Click “View” on the top of the browser, then click “Zoom”, then increase the size. I normally increase to a size between 250% and 300%, then scroll to the player. The player is larger and there is no pixilation. To reverse, click “View” and reduce to 100%.
