Happy Dominion Day!

Once upon a time, we were a colony of the British but on May 22, 1867 we became Canada and that year we celebrated our first "Dominion Day" celebration. The name may have changed to Canada Day, but we're still celebrating the same way.

I found this archival photo of Riverdale Park on Dominion Day 1952. Nice to remember that Riverdale Park was once a parade ground....
