Scope and Content

Fonds consists of photographs and scanned project registers created by Bob (Robert) Cunningham, mainly documenting trade shows and conventions in the Greater Toronto Area and elsewhere in Ontario.

The photographs and registers, which act as indexes to the photographs, document general exhibition scenes and vendor booths belonging to large national and multinational companies, as well as smaller local businesses. A variety of organizations both large and small are also included.

While photographs of trade shows and conventions constituted the majority of his work, Cunningham also photographed machinery, construction, buildings, ships, graduation ceremonies, and other subjects.
