Puyallup Fair

September 10, 2010 by USA Post 

Puyallup Fair, In 1929, the twins were Thoren cover girls. Gloria and Helen were 6 when they appeared, with a balloon man and a man of ice cream in front of the annual brochure of the Western Washington Fair.

How could I resist a photographer? Farm-raised and healthy as apples, the twins were happy, useful and, as Gloria points out, never fought.

Also matched. His mother made clothes, and dressed alike throughout Mountain View Elementary School, Sumner High School and his first year in what is now Pacific Lutheran University.

Therefore, it was natural to pick for the cover of the brochure promised “many hours of happiness” for area children.

Many more hours are planned this year – for twins and one million visitors expected or others – such as the Puyallup Fair opens today at the moment 110. Early risers can “free their joy” for free before noon today at the fair gets under way 17 days.

Among the visitors are countless veterans who have attended many of these fairs since 1900. Veterans are half way Glenn “Bud” Graham, who was named the best baby of the show 90 years ago, and Clarence Miller, a septuagenarian who recalls the infiltration through the bars of the fence as a young boy.

These days the twins are Thoren 87-year-old Gloria Perry of University Place and Helen Sumner Jansen. Helen is 10 minutes younger than his sister.
