A boy dressed as a robot at the Walker County Fair parade in 1955

Enjoy this picture of a participant in the 1955 Walker County Fair parade. He probably dreamed of a  future full of robots that would perform his chores and make his life easy. Unfortunately it did not turn out that way as most robots work on production lines or do Japanese fan dances (I think those robots are awesome by the way). At least we have the rumba!

If you have any idea who this child is, we would love to find out.
