Fence Industry Magazine - January 1981

Welcome to Magazine Monday. All you fence enthusiasts are in for a real treat today, the rest of us going to fall asleep while reading this post. From January 1981 it’s Fence Industry Magazine.

“Gear up for the 80’s” with the 19th Annual IFIA Show! A three and a half day event! Who do they think they are, D23?

This article is long and honestly a bit of snooze- fest. A few pages down they talk some generic stuff about Disneyland…

Garry (Happy Days) Marshall! I met him once at softball game in the San Fernando Valley, he couldn’t have been nicer and he's funny as heck too!

Stock photos?

Most of the articles were very industry related and dry as could be. This one is kind of interesting however. Do you really think that chain link fence held the big rig from flying off the side of the mountain?

The advertisements were really weird.

Believe it or not, there are still more magazines to post!!! A few more obscure ones (yes even more obscure than Fence magazine) some Disney World magazines (gasp) a few rare vintage Disneyland related magazines and some holiday issues, so Magazine Monday should run thru the end of 2009.

Wow, Fence magazine, who knew! "Chain Link at its Best"... finally a magazine that I can enjoy!! I hope you have "Latex Paint Monthly", or maybe "Cement World".

I am hoping you have one for "The Wonders of Asphalt" magazine, the industry magazine for the asphalt industry. One of the more obscure magazines I have is for Industrial Maintenance featuring the round house for the train and the monorail.

I'm blown away- but my fence is still standing! I wonder if FENCE is still published? I love their logo. Great stuff as always!
