The Governor General Visits the Shredded Wheat Factory

It is still early enough to be thinking about breakfast, isn't it?

In 1933, the Governor General of Canada, Vere Brabazon Ponsonby - Earl of Bessborough, visited the Shredded Wheat Factory in Niagara Falls. As one does when visiting a factory, full formal wear including top hat and coat was required. There is even a nice shot of the GG helping himself to a free sample.
