The early CNE, known as the Toronto Industrial Exhibition, was a traditional agricultural fair with a myriad of traditional agricultural competitions including cattle auctions, horse show, poultry, sheep, and ram exhibitions to name a few. Prize lists, like this one, were dedicated to all forms of competitions with categories, prizing and competitors listed. The woman on the cover holds a plaque representing the provinces and territories that were part of the Canadian confederation in 1890. The cornucopia, a symbol of abundance represents the CNE’s agricultural roots while the laurel wreath symbolizes peace and victory.
