Martin seemed quite pleased to observe the riders, although it is diffi-
cult to tell from his diary entry whether or not it was the ‘hundreds of
ladies’ or the ‘beautiful horses’ that drew him to Rotten Row.60
Watching the ‘hundreds of ladies’ mounted on expensive horseflesh
was not just a masculine pastime. Murphy was not as scathing about
this English custom, for she noted ‘some smart turnouts’ on ‘the Lady’s
Mile’ and enjoyed the ‘carefully toileted men, the acme of elegance.’
She could not resist a
Town Hall across from the Plaça Sant Jaume
public square, often the site of loud political demonstrations. The great

public square in front of the Town Hall was uncharacteristically quiet
as IOC president Count de Baillet-Latour, seemingly unperturbed by
the poor turnout, called the meeting to order. First on the agenda, the
mayor of Barcelona, accompanied by local civil, military, and aca-
demic dignitaries, officially welcomed the IOC delegates to his city
and wished them a productive meeting. Several other local dignitaries
The volume of mail enquiring about the date of the bombardment,
and a half holiday granted to most of the city's factory hands and
many of its clerks, had primed officials for a large turnout, but even
they may have been surprised by the numbers. 'Never in the history
of a Toronto crowd has such a gathering been got together as that
which assembled in and around the exhibition grounds yesterday,'
reported the World, though its estimate of thirty-five thousand indi-
viduals was conservative. The Mail put the total at somewhere
between fifty and sixty thousand, far

the most ‘picturesque group were the coal black, strong, bearded troops
of the Imperial Service, dressed in turbans and gorgeous Oriental uni-
forms. These men were led by Sir Pretab Singh.’99 At George V’s corona-
tion fourteen years later the ‘Indian princes’ still retained their power to
dazzle Canadians, for George Pack found them to be ‘beyond descrip-
tion’ in a ‘most gorgeous turnout of horses and trappings.’100
Canadian tourists rarely came into direct contact with non-white
members of the

whose publicity insisted the couple had lingered at their booths.21
The response to subsequent vice-regal appearances, including a
return by Lome and Louise in 1883, was less frenzied but essentially
similar: enthusiastic turnouts to welcome the visitors, detailed inter-
est in what had caught their eye, and much self-congratulation by
those so favoured. The Exhibition Association understood well the
drawing power of the governor general, but more was at stake than a
chance to ogle the results of selective
its inception. The association quickly instituted a 'Societies' Day,'
hoping large turn-outs of uniformed members would brighten pro-
ceedings and boost attendance figures. Local chapters often felt some
obligation to welcome out-of-town members. In 1881, for example,
visiting Orangemen were reminded they could find at least one city
branch in session on every night of the week, while the Masons oper-
ated a registry and information office out of their Temple during the
show. A decade later, ladies of the Rose of Sharon Lodge, Loyal True
