Description:
"I'm Too Old for That"
View of a crowd of people gathered in front of the Crazy House midway attraction at the Southeastern Fair at Lakewood Park in Atlanta, Georgia.
The resort area that would come to be known as Lakewood Park opened in 1893. In 1915 it began hosting the Southeastern Fair and in 1938, Lakewood Speedway was built on the property. The Southeastern Fair was discontinued in 1975, and Lakewood Speedway ceased stock car racing in 1979. In the 1980's it became home to a motion picture complex, an antique flea market, and an amphitheater.
