Thousands of people enjoyed the Sunset Junction Street Fair on this August day. Some browsed, some tended to their booths, and others read poetry. In this photo, we see three people standing next to a folding table inside a Laundromat; a row of washing machines advertising .75 cents per wash in front of them, and a double row of dryers behind them, along the wall. One man holds a video camera pointed toward a person, barely visible, on the right of the photo. That person is talking into a microphone, most likely reading their poetry. The annual neighborhood fair features ethnic foods, artisans, beer gardens, live entertainment, architectural tours, and usually occurs in late August; a large portion of Sunset Boulevard is closed off. The two-day neighborhood festival was first held in 1980 and is put on by the Sunset Junction Neighborhood Alliance. Photograph dated August 24, 1997.
