CNE Press Building in 1937 & Sept 3, 2022

Posted:

1937/September 3, 2022 – The Administration Building is located at 210 Princes’ Blvd at Toronto’s Exhibition Place. Built in 1904, this was the first of several structures at the Canadian National Exhibition designed by architect George Wallace Gouinlock.

The Beaux-Arts style building was home to the CNE Association until 1957, when they moved their offices into the newly built Queen Elizabeth Building. That same year, the Administration Building was renamed the Press Building when it became the media headquarters during the annual fair. In 1992, CNE staff returned to the grand building, which continued to be called the Press Building. In 2022, the “PRESS” sign was removed to uncover the “ADMINISTRATION” nameplate.
