Lost CNE

Up until the late 1960’s-early 1970’s the CNE featured a “Freak Show”.

People that were deformed and physically handicapped were put on display.

I personally saw the Bonnie and Clyde death car at the CNE circa 1967 complete with blood covered mannequins inside. At the time there were several “Death Cars” travelling around North America so it’s hard to say if this was the actual car.

    Kind of shocking that it was so relatively recent. I remember similar displays/exhibits at the Ottawa Ex in the late 60s/early 70s.

    On the other hand, those fonts are fantastic – especially Alive and Ernie and Len.
