Canadian Pacific
T/ie Expression of a Nation's Character
WORLDWIDE in scope, international in activities, the Canadian Pacific
is pre-eminently the expression of a progressive nation's character-
Canadian  Pacific  rails  extend   from  the   Atlantic   to   the  Pacific   Ocean,
webbing prairies   and  mountains, reaching  out  to  cities,   farms,   forests,
ranches and mines scattered over a million square miles.
Stupendous record in steel of the daring and genius of a young people who
fifty years ago dreamed of transforming a virgin wilderness into a nation—
and made their dream come true*
Canadian Pacific Steamships, on all the seven seas—Canadian Pacific
Telegraphs, carrying messages to world's end and back—Canadian Pacific
Express, trusted bearer of goods to the farthest places, with money-orders
of worldwide currency—Canadian Pacific Hotels, with guests from all the
continents.
Gigantic symbol of the vision, enterprise and spirit of the people of Canada, Winnipeg from the air showing in centre Royal Alexandra Hotel with Canadian Pacific station adjoining.
9fie CITY
Winnipeg, situated at the confluence of the Red and
Assiniboine Rivers, is the capital of Manitoba and the
gateway to the fertile prairie-lands and fabulously rich
mineral areas of the Canadian West. A village of only 215
souls in 1870, Winnipeg today is a prosperous, thriving
city with a population in excess or 300,000. It is the
financial, industrial and railway centre of the Midwestern Provinces and the greatest grain marketing
centre of the world.
The wide range of Winnipeg's business and cultural
activities, the beauty of its boulevards, many parks,
public buildings and residences, and the friendly open-
hearted nature of its citizens make it particularly attractive to the visitor. Its history, too, is more than usually
appealing. Linked with its site are the names and deeds
of the explorers, missionaries, fur-traders and railway
builders who opened the North-West to civilization and
settlement.
Vfie CLIMATE
Winnipeg's climate is typically Canadian in its varied
attractiveness. Each season has its own delightful
qualities, but shares with the others a dryness of air
that is very invigorating. Summertime brings long
days of warm sunshine and cool breezes, Spring is a time
of mild winds, blossoms and budding trees, the autumns
are pleasantly brisk, and the winter season, perhaps the
most enjoyable of all in Winnipeg, has a crisp tingling
cold that sets eyes asparkle and sends the blood racing.
POINTS of INTEREST
Winnipeg possesses a wide range of attractions. It
boasts of more than thirty parks, the principal ones being
Assiniboine with fine tropical conservatories, zoo and
driveways, and the Kildonan which has deep woods,
rustic bridges and shaded picnic grounds. Among the
city's fine public buildings are the Manitoba Parliament
Buildings, Manitoba Agricultural College, the City
.Jiall k4d the Law Courts. The gateway of Fort Garry,
all th^t remains of the old centre of the fur-trade, Lower
"jfeort Gfery, the Grain Exchange, the "Countess of
Siufeft^.''—the first locomotive to enter Winnipeg—the
many golf courses, Seven Sisters Falls, and the beaches
of Lake Winnipeg are among
the many other interesting
places in and near this great
metropolis of the Canadian
West. North and east of
Winnipeg lies a magnificent
virgin country, abounding
in spectacular scenery and
offering splendid opportunities for hunting, fishing and
other sporting activities.

recreational attractions and facilities
Golf
Winnipeg has 16 private, 5 semi-private and 2
public golf courses, providing a wide range of sport
for the enthusiastic golfer. Guests of the Royal
Alexandra may play over the semi-private and public
courses, and those who are members of recognized
golf clubs may enjoy privileges on any of the private
courses, including the St. Charles Country Club,
Elmhurst and Winnipeg courses. Green fees vary
from 50 cents to $2.00.
Tennis
Winnipeg boasts of an imposing number of
privately-owned courts which are uniformly maintained in splendid condition.
Motoring
Many delightful drives may be taken both within
and outside of Winnipeg. A fine road connects the
city with the summer resorts on Lake Winnipeg, and
other good roads lead to the farming districts of the
Red and Assiniboine valleys.
Riding
Saddle horses may be hired at reasonable rates
from several riding establishments in the city.
Parks
Winnipeg's 34 parks constitute an unrivalled
sightseeing feature. Prominent among them is
Assiniboine Park with a large conservatory where
rare tropical plants bloom in profusion, a fine Zoo,
scenic driveways, flower gardens and playgrounds.
Horse Racing
In Polo Park and Whittier, Winnipeg possesses
two of the newest and most up-to-date race tracks in
Western Canada. Fourteen days of racing are
offered in both June and September and afford
visitors to Winnipeg an opportunity to witness
races of high order.
Bathing and Boating
Excellent facilities for bathing and boating are
provided at Winnipeg Beach, which lies 49 miles
north of the city. Good roads and frequent train
service make this popular resort easily accessible.
It is situated on the southwest shore of Lake Winnipeg, and has all the features that a modern
summer resort offers. The long bathing beach is
safe even for young children and there are up-to-
date dressing-rooms for both men and women,
moving-picture theatre, dance pavilion, merry-go-
round, roller coaster, golf course, tennis courts,
boat-liveries, etc., etc. Close to Winnipeg Beach
lie the beautiful residential resorts of Matlock,
Whytewold, Ponemah, Boundary Park and Sandy
Hook, popular summering places for Winnipeg
people.
Fishing and Hunting
Contrary to the general impression—which holds
Manitoba to be flat and treeless—three-fourths of
the province consists of wooded territory where
good moose, caribou and deer-hunting may be had.
The lakes, bays and rivers of the province also
afford splendid wild-fowl shooting in season, being
visited literally by millions of geese, ducks and
other migratory birds on their way south in the Fall.
Manitoba has 19,000 square miles of waterways,
and these provide anglers with opportunities for
good sport. Winnipeg is the gateway to the famous
trout lakes which lie in the 20,000 Islands' district,
and nearby the city are other fishing waters offering a variety of game-fish, including trout, bass,
pickerel and the Manitoba gold-eye, a rare edible
treat.
Winter Sports
Winnipeg, with its dry cold days and nights,
offers an almost perfect setting for winter sports,
Visitors may enjoy the thrill of hurtling down
Western Canada's longest Toboggan Slide at breathtaking speed, may witness horse-racing on the
ice, exciting hockey games, and if so inclined, may
take advantage of almost boundless opportunities
for skiing, snowshoeing and skating afforded in the
parks and outlying districts of the city. Royal (Alexandra Hotel
