Oh, and image the support equipment to operate those 12 Units and the 169 rides...
How many generators, tractors, office trailers, etc....

He's an elderly gentleman. That's the best I can do. Wouldn't begin to try and guess his age. Might make someone try and guess mine. Ouch!

Bosman said there was no one here older than him, but he disappeared but I figure you for 65-70. That's within 5 years for the top shelf.

My Dad says he remembers Gooding Amusement Company, they were quite the operation for their time. And nope, we will never see an operation like that again. Anyone got a time machine that works? Would not mind seeing what this show was like, lol. (Along with other great shows of the time.) [:)]

I remember the last, or second to last, year that Goodings played the Mid South fair. I think CVS had booked on their new Chance giant wheel. First time I had seen one.

After the fair closed, Googings ride jocks went on STRIKE! I remember several rides, including their skywheel, being left on the lot for a week.

Farrow won the date from Goodings and has played the fair ever since.

Not near that old yet. Are you looking for a knuckle sandwich? I have girlfriends half that age.
