Trade & Consumer Shows photograph collection

  • ON00421 C 32
  • Collection
  • 1971-1978

The collection consists of photographic negatives and transparencies documenting various trade shows held at Exhibition Place and associated events held at other locations, such as publicity photo shoots and galas. Included are images of the Boat Show, the Canadian National Business Show, the Flower Show, the National Home Show, the International Electric and Electronic Conference and Exposition, the Manufacturers’ Opportunity Show, the Canadian National Pool and Patio Show, and the Sportsmen Show. Photographs depict crowds walking through the shows; performances, ceremonies and competitions that were held at the shows; models and notable personalities; exhibitor booths; show signs displayed on the exterior of the buildings where the shows were held; and various displays of items and events relevant to each show. Also included are portraits of William Mallatratt (Chief General Manager of Exhibition Place from 1976-1981), his house and his retirement party (before he became Chief General Manager), which took place during the Home Show of 1976.

Photographs were arranged by the creator alphabetically by show name. This arrangement was maintained and, where necessary, some refiling was done. The files in this collection consist of negatives and transparencies that were kept together in labelled envelopes containing between 2 and 200 photographs. This file structure has been kept, although the negatives and transparencies have been rehoused in new envelopes. The titles written on the original envelopes have been transcribed and recorded in a note in each file’s description; however, descriptive titles have been supplied as the file titles if the original titles were not complete or correct. Many photographs are labelled with numbers used by the creator to maintain control over the negatives. These creator numbers, when they exist, have been recorded in the alpha-numeric designations note for each file.
