"Whoa, Brandy- When Brandy, a one-year-old St. Bernard, wants to eat, there's little anyone short of a wrestler can do to apply the breaks. However, six-year-old Timmy Kidder of Aylmer keeps trying. Brandy was one of the entries at Thursday's Aylmer Fair pet show. See page 6 for further fair pictures and results." (34a)
"Best Udder In The Show- Pioneer Citation Peachy Flo Excellent, owned by Forest Lee Farms, Ltd., was the grand champion Holstein female in the Elgin County Black and White Show, and also winner for the cow with the best udder award at the Aylmer Fair Thursday. She was shown by Bill Shively, Springfield." (34b)
"Enjoying The Fair- All the excitement, thrills, and awe of the bright midway lights are seconded by the sparkle of delight in Cindy's eyes as she thoroughly enjoys her candy floss and watches one of the brightly-lit midway rides. Three-year-old Cindy is the daughter of Mrs. Lana Vance of RR 5, St. Thomas." (34c)
"Grandstand Show- The Imperial Hell Drivers of Toronto put on their second show last night at the Aylmer Fair. The cars cross in front of each other at full throttle with only inches to spare between cars. Seen here is one of the cars being launched for a short two-wheel ride." (34d)
"Now Look, You Guys - Some midway rides were intended for little kids, and six-year-old Peter Rumble, of Kingsmill, says that this is one of them. The two 'big kids' are Dick Campbell, King Street, Aylmer, and Gord Smith, Rutherford Avenue, Aylmer." (34e)

"Winning Teamwork- Marysa Snider and Rightly So have been a winning combination at the fair for the past three years. The fair is one of 11 competitions the duo will be in this summer." (89a)
"The Nutty Professor- Fair director Steven McEown and the white-coated Black Poland cock that took one of the first prizes in the poultry class. The long-haired chicken resembles TV's Nutty Professor and is owned by Mr. L. Underhill of Port Burwell." (89b)
"A Real Dummy!- This jack-in-the-box is actually a styrofoam dummy. His owner, Mrs. Dianne Lilley of RR 1, Dutton, dressed him up with icing and entered him in the London Farm Show. The judges thought he was just sweet and awarded his owner with first prize. Here, Mrs. Lilley exhibits him at the Aylmer Fair." (89c)
"High Flying Twosome- Even Flash Gordon probably started out this way before he made his legendary flight to visit far off places. But the Aylmer Fair was pretty down to earth for most and lots of fun. Above, Janet Wall, 3, and sister Judy, 5, go into orbit on the midway, which proved to be a popular place for youngsters." (89d)
