The Iconic Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket

The Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket might be the oldest and most identifiable Canadian tradition. These blankets were originally created in 1780 for fur trappers, traders and natives to survive outdoors in frigid Canadian winters. The point system is in place to rate the warmth and size of the blanket. These blankets are such high quality and so highly valued that they are often handed down through families and found for hundreds of dollars in thrift stores.

Industrial Fair

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.
