Photographer's Note

Carnival time in Simi Valley, "Pioneer days" to honor the first citizens. In the 1880's, Simi was advertised in newspapers back east, lots for sale, with a huge imaginary river in the pictures. 12 lots were sold to start the new city. A "pre-fab" house was included with each lot, from Sears and Roebuck. It arrived by train, from Chicago, in pieces, in boxes. Simi Valley now boosts over 100 thousand people, and endless expensive new homes. What would the first citizens of this "metropolis" think of it now? What could they think of this carnival ride? The long arm of this ride goes around and around, up and down. The seats spin, turning the people sometimes upside down as they spin all over the skies. The hot sun still reigns supreme.
