Expo 67 - British Pavilion

Here's a shot of the stately British Pavilion. You can see the Expo train just entering on the left side. I loved riding the trains and the monorails. Dad clearly has some elevation for this picture -- perhaps he was riding a monorail when he took it...? IMG_0382

Expo 67 - La Ronde 2

Here I am at La Ronde, riding something called....Toonerville? I have no memory of this at all. And what the heck is a Toonerville? It may be a reference to Toonerville Folks, an American newspaper comic strip that ran from 1908 until the mid-1950s. The strip often centered around a trolley called, naturally enough, the Toonerville Trolley. Expo 1967 (3)

Expo 67 - Pavilion of Thailand

The Pavilion of Thailand was clearly one of Dad's favourite Expo subjects. Maybe he liked the funky spires or the little pool with the boat in it. Whatever the reason, it caught his attention. IMG_0381

He photographed it a number of times, and on different trips to Expo. IMG_0062 IMG_0050

Expo 67 - The French and the Brits

This nice shot of Dad's shows the round French Pavilion and the towering British Pavilion. The French Pavilion is one of the few remaining pavilions. These days, it's a casino. IMG_0056
