Carnival Target From a Pass Time

Don't know if I should admit this but I remember shooting these targets on the midway at the county fair, Alameda County, Ca. I remember paying my $.50 for I think 3 shots to win a prize. The Carny would give a quick what and what not to do before letting you fire a .22 cal rifle at the target. Wow how things have changed.
This is the Rooster target with a single bulls-eye below. The roosters and bulls-eye are in excellent condition and the patina of this target is wonderful. A true piece of Americana at it's best.
To think just about 50 years ago this was absolutely a safe and sane way to pass your time with friends, trying to out shoot one another and showing your shooting  skills.
