This month’s cover features detail of a photograph from Expo ’67, the World Exhibition held April 28—October 29, 1967, in Montreal, Quebec. Simply labeled “The watchers of a VIP visit” by the photographer, Meredith F. Dixon (1905–72), the image provides a view of the Man the Producer Pavilion. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the world’s fair, as well as the 375th anniversary of Montreal.

Dixon meticulously planned his many visits to the exhibition site on Montreal’s Île Notre Dame and Île Sainte-Hélène, in the Saint Lawrence River, and his collection of almost 500 slides capture all aspects of expo. The image is part of the McGill University Library and Archives Expo ’67 Slide Collection. Learn more about the collection at http://digital.library.mcgill.ca/expo-67/index.html.
