Abstract
At the 50th annual Danville, Va., fair, two men examine an old Nissen wagon made by State Senator Landon R. Wyatt. The men also inspect the WSLS-TV booth in the commercial building of the fair. A new ride from Germany called the Rotor is introduced to the fair, children drive kiddie cars, and the WDVA radio station broadcast takes place in a 20-foot tall booth. Footage includes broad view of fairgrounds.
