Photograph of the Auto Show being held in the Automotive Building at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario. A variety of cars from 1940 can be seen featured in the photograph. In June of the same year a number of Italian Canadian men were held in both the Automotive Building and the Horse Palace on the Canadian National Exhibition grounds. They slept on a cement floor with a single blanket for bedding and were under constant guard.
