Empress Hotel, Victoria
Canada Offers Uncpt-        %!harm and Interest to Every Tourist
W/HETHER the guest in  Canada prefers the life of  the  city, with  its many
ried  types of recreation,  or the country life with  its sports of field  and
stream, he can find in Canada just the diversion and entertainment he seeks.
In Victoria, for example, one finds the Parliament Buildings, Provincial
Museum and Library, Mineral Museum, Dominion Astrophysical Observatory,
Butchart Sunken Gardens and Brentwood, all having distinct appeal to the
sightseer. For the golfer, there are numerous fine courses, including the Colwood
Golf and Country Club, which is open to all guests at the Empress Hotel upon
payment of the regular green fees.
A distinct feature in Victoria is the Canadian Pacific Company's Crystal
Gardens, one of the largest indoor swimming pools on the American continent,
and a gymnasium, dancing palace and peacock promenade as well.
From Victoria the motorist follows the Island Highway over Malahat Drive
through  Duncan  and  Ladysmith  to  Nanaimo,   80  miles  distant.     Nanaimo,  the
second oldest city in British Columbia, is the center of the British Columbia coal
mining industry, and is tributary to numerous regions of scenic beauty and fishing
a city of distinct historical appeal.
At Nanaimo one boards a Canadian Pacific ferry for a magnificent
short sail to Vancouver, crossing the far-famed Gulf of Georgia. Vancouver, a city of 175,000 residents, is a commanding metropolis that
bristles with commercial life and tourist appeal.
In Vancouver there are many points of scenic interest, including
Stanley Park, the Marine Drive, Grouse Mountain Highway, Capilano Canyon, Lynn Canyon and English Bay. Here again golf plays an important
part, five courses offering distinct playing advantages to the tourist. One
of the newest and most attractive of the courses is Langara, recently built
by the Canadian Pacific Company. The Hotel Vancouver is the social and
business center of the city.
Vancouver is of great natural interest through its close proximity to
immense lumber and shingle industries, mining and farming interests. It is
the Pacific Coast terminal for the great Canadian Pacific Empress liners
that sail regularly to Japan, China and the Philippines, and the terminals
are always open for public inspection.
Both Victoria and Vancouver are cities well worth visiting, and the
tourist will find many interesting types of recreation, freedom and pleasure
in the British Columbia territory.

Stanley Park, Vancouver ONE of the most interesting and enjoyable features of a trip to Canada is
the voyage aboard the luxurious liners Princess Kathleen and Princess
Marguerite. These ships were built at Clydebank, Scotland, especially for the
Canadian Pacific Triangular Service, at a cost of $1,500,000 each, and are
capable of making an average speed of 21 knots an hour. In design, accommodations and service they are replicas of the largest trans-ocean Empress

arranged with large square windows to enable the passengers to obtain an
excellent view. Comfortable chairs and settees are furnished, where one may
relax and enjoy to the fullest extent the ever-interesting views.
The Library is entered by a stairway from the Observation Room as
well as from the Boat Deck, and is decorated with fine detail in Louis XVI
style. Bookcases where you'll find a wealth of good books, comfortable
lounge seats and charmingly designed oval tables upon which you'll find the
latest issue of your favorite magazine, form a part of the equipment. A feature of the Library is the Sperry Master Gyro Compass, which has been fitted
with a special case, enabling the passengers to view the working of the
internal mechanism.
The Dining Saloons of the ships are finely proportioned rooms, extending
across the full width of the ship and decorated in true Louis XVI

The  Smoking  Room  is  uniquely  decorated  in  an  Alaskan

which are fitted with brilliantly colored leaded glass. Seats covered with brown hide arc arranged around the room, and in the
