Description

"La Grande (Union County) - September 22-23, 1902. A balloon ascension, in connection with the County Fair in 1902 brought out the people from miles around the Grande Ronde Valley and from Wallowa County as well. Here, a large crowd is gathered around the launching of the hot air balloon. In the background, a billboard advertises "Cyrus Noble Whiskey - Pure, Old, Honest," and to the right of the billboard is the "Bolton and Bodmer Hardware & Agriculture Implements" store.
