"Toronto becomes a world trading centre when merchants and manufacturers, exhibitors and buyers from every part of the globe arrive for the Canadian International Trade Fair. Here on display is the sum and substance of industrial and national progress, manifested in the wide range of goods making their bid for world consumption. Colourful costumes and wares transform many display booths into little segments of far-away places and, for the visitor, a panorama of Canada itself in miniature. A place for big business, not unmixed with pleasure, the Trade Fair is a source of gratification for its sponsor, Canada, as world trader meets world trader."
