This photo, most likely from the 1920s, shows a wheat field at the Central Experimental Farm. The Parliament buildings are visible in the background.

The original CEF consisted of 466 acres, purchased from 14 different owners between 1886 and 1888. Though only 5 kilometres away from Parliament, this distance was far more significant in the days before cars or reliable public transportation.
