First air views as the big 1947 Canadian National Exhibition got under way opening day are shown here. Many familiar landmarks are included in this general view of the expansive grounds; with the only remaining wartime car being the missing grandstand; which was destroyed by fire. It is expected it will be rebuilt for next year's Exhibition Open in full size
