More than a couple of decades ago, a little girl got on the carousel at the Fair Haven Firemen’s Fair and took a ride.

She was beaming and waving as she rode ’round and ’round. The moment was captured in a black-and-white photo.

It’s a classic fair moment that says a lot about the month’s end more than century-old tradition for which preparations are underway.

So, the Retro Pic of the Day honors this little girl’s ride on the merry go ’round and many other fair moments like it.

The little girl would be in her twenties now. Anyone recognize her?
