Well, I remember when the Canadian dollar (after being allowed to float in 1950 and after exchange controls were removed - 1951) was running at $1.02 - $1.06 US - hitting a high of $1.0614 on the 20th of August, 1957. On the 2nd of May 1962 the Canadian dollar was re-fixed at $0.925 US +/- 1%. This was referred to as the Diefenbuck - after the Prime Minister of the day, John Diefenbaker, who also cancelled the Avro Arrow project, a Canadian jet made by the A.V. Roe Company.

Photographic relevance?

I own a rather large Deardorff copy camera that was used by the A.V. Roe Company it really is a monster.
