 Hi folks,

I would guess this is from the 1930s - likely an exhibition at the PNE in
either 1932 or 1933. The "Make Canada prosperous by buying Canadian
products" campaign was a 1930s initiative - more on that here:

In the Vancouver Archives you can find similar photos with the Dominion
Photo stamp:

I hope this helps.
