Burkhart Photo

Steve dug up this great group of photos at the flea market this weekend. All of them relate to Burkhart Photo & Bible Store who also sold greeting cards. After photos of the owner Don and employee John W., there were photos of their booth through the years at the Porterville Fair. These photos brought back memories of the Orange County Fair where one of the buildings was filled with these booths from local merchants. Such a great peek into the past.

Wow, I love these. Great historical photos. I especially love the first photo because of the 40s/50s era neon sign. My favorite.
