Farmers and kids in 4-H programs in Schenectady, Albany and Greene counties brought horses, cows, sheep, hens, roosters, ducks, rabbits and other critters to the 1967 Altamont Fair. A “world of yesteryear” was also featured. Grandma’s kitchen from the past, Thomas Edison phonographs and early radios were on display. “Christmas in August” was the theme of the flower show.
“On the ‘don’t miss it’ list this year at the fair is No. 3028, one of the last steam locomotives built in Schenectady’s old Alco plant,” wrote Jane Rowe.
