This photo of the fairgrounds, taken in 1913, harkens back to the days before midway rides and food trucks (and look at the outfits!). It was growing in popularity and attendance, in fact just six years before this photo was taken it moved from a two day event to three, and there was mention of people taking the train just to attend the Richmond Fair!- Photo from the  Goulbourn Museum
