Newspaper photo of two women, Joan and Mary Holancin, crouched in front of a sign reading "Bradford: The Heart of Canada's Vegetable Industry" with a second sign below it reading "Centennial - Celebrating 100 Years of Progress 1857 - 1957." Part of the centennial festivities was the opening of the district community centre for which residents contributed close to $100,000. The most popular sport in village community at the time was hockey, and the village acquired a new team that year.
