Ah, the Ex... a Toronto tradition. Heralding the end of summer, Toronto has been hosting this annual celebration for a very long time now. The Ex started out as a travelling agricultural fair in the 1840s, and became a permanent fairgrounds in 1878. Originally called the Toronto Industrial Exhibition, it was renamed the Canadian National Exhibition in 1912. It's now Canada's largest exhibition and the fifth largest in North America. We hope you enjoy these images of bygone days.
