The Cleveland Sportsmen Show has been around a long time -- since 1927. The first time around it filled Public Auditorium for just three years due to the Great Depression. Seven years went by and finally in 1937 the doors opened again. This guide measures 4-1/2" x 11-1/4" and opens to four panels which measure 17-3/4" across.The 1939 show opened April 15th and closed April 23rd. What's interesting is unusual competitions which included log-rolling, canoe tilting, wood chopping and cross-cut-sawing. They also had casting tricks and demonstrations, game retrieving, marksmanship, deep-sea fishing and archery. Special events included Native American songs and dances, a sporting dog exhibit, field dog training, trap-shooting, a public rifle range and a public archery range. Guide has information on all panels and on both sides. Very nice! Fairly scarce.
