Scope and content

Photo taken atop the Bradford Co-op of the truckloads of farmers bringing their produce to the market. The caption reads: "The above picture, taken from the roof of the Bradford Co-Operative Storage Ltd., shows only a section of the trucks, large and small, which formed the huge cavalcade of Holland Marsh growers and their vehicles, just before they moved off on their trek to Toronto City Hall to present to Mayor McCallum several truck-loads of vegetables for Toronto orphanages and the Hospital for Sick Children. Approximately 125 trucks made up a procession, about a mile and a quarter in length, which went right through with motorcycle police from Bradford to the City Hall without a stop."
