(oastern Canada
and        ..—
'nrted i^ates
has come much nearer to Great Britain
of late not only in the Imperial sense, but
also in the travel sense. For pleasure or
for business, or for a kindly combination
of both, a visit to Eastern Canada and
principal cities of the United States is in
these days immensely advantageous. The
recreational value of such a visit cannot be
over-estimated. The sea trip of a week or
less with only three and a half days in open
water, is splendidly invigorating. The
approach to Canada by way of the smooth,
sheltered St. Lawrence is delightful. Eastern Canada is so sunny and so interesting.
No wonder ever-increasing numbers of
the enterprising and businesslike from Great
Britain are visiting, and arranging to visit
Canada, either independently or as members
of the Canadian Pacific Personally Conducted
parties which have been devised to give the
maximum enjoyment and Canadian travel-
experience for the most moderate outlay.
Quite near to Britain, in Nova Scotia and
New Brunswick, there is one of the world's
loveliest holiday lands. Halifax, a city of
romantic history and great beauty, is at
the doorway to the Land of Evangeline.
Here the summer climate is delightful, the
scenes perfection. All summer's recreations
are here, whether indoors or out—golf,
bathing, sailing, fishing, dancing. So, too,
with Saint John, New Brunswick, and
St. Andrews-by-the-Sea.
Queen of the romantic cities of Canada is Quebec, a city of delightful vistas. Ancient are
the picturesque churches, convents, fortifications, and narrow streets; modern is the mighty
Quebec Bridge, which you may easily visit from Quebec. And there are the cities of Montreal
and Ottawa to view; there is Toronto, with Niagara Falls just across the lovely Lake Ontario.
Refreshing route changes are easy. Perhaps you want real good fishing in the veritable
Canadian bush-country ? Then there is French River for you, with its chalet-bungalow camps, and
the true life of the wild wedded to the comforts of civilization. Or you may be anxious to pay a
visit to the United States, to Chicago, Detroit, New York, Boston. These fine cities also are
included in the Canadian Pacific series of Personally Conducted Tours to Canada and the U.S.A.
Or if you prefer it you may make an independent tour under Canadian Pacific auspices, seeing
exactly what you wish to see, and staying just where you wish to stay for as long as may suit you.
Whether it be a complete Across Canada Tour, an independent visit, or a Personally Conducted
Tour of longer or shorter duration, The Canadian Pacific can arrange it for you.

• Duchess " liner
(20,000 tons)
DANCING wavelets chattering merrily
at the landing stage, and the Canadian
Pacific " Duchess " liner flying the " Blue
Peter " and flourishing a festive plume of
steam in her eagerness to be off—that is
the stage-setting for the ocean send-off
you will experience on this wonderful
Empire-greeting Tour to Eastern Canada.
Do you know what an Atlantic trip on
a " Duchess" liner can be ? An experience that tingles in the memory like
a wonderful wine. Everything about you
awake to the wonder of the sea : everything eager on the alert: everything joyful
on the jump ! Here aboard a well-found
ship that is luxurious as an Eastern
palace in style and service, you shake
off longshore worries like a winter
garment, and breathe in new freedom,
new joy, new interest, new zest.    Twenty
thousand tons of sheer comfort—that's
the " Duchess " liner—and at your disposal
British built, and an oil-burner, getting
you across the Atlantic in seven days, your
" Duchess " liner has bright airy cabins,
abundance of promenade space, delightful
dining and smoking rooms, and lounge
luxury that would incline to the indolence
of utter satisfaction, were it not for that
appetizing ocean air and the stimulation of
this invigorating voyage. And there is
always plenty of fun on board—deck sports,
concerts and dances attend to that!
Five days out from port, the ship glides
from the open sea into the noble St. Lawrence Seaway. Those soft blue outlines
ahead are Canada, and as you draw steadily
nearer to them, many a marvel of magic
colouring is revealed. At  Sea  on   a  M Duchess "   liner.    Above   is seen the
Tourist Lounge.    Down the side an impromptu dance
and the  Dining  Room
Your   Shi p I
TERE the liner trip becomes more than ever an
excursion into realms of sheer delight. You
have made friends in the kindly congenial way of
the sea. The sunshine simply surprises you by
its rich, beneficent rays. The lovely, smooth St.
Lawrence, growing in interest at every turn of
the propellers, invites you to linger often on
deck watching the New World blossom into reality
before your eyes. Other vessels appear, to meet and greet your liner's arrival. There
are the great ones going forth to cross the ocean you have just traversed; there are the
little ones coming merrily down from Montreal or the riverports of the St. Lawrence. By
the St. Lawrence Short Seaway it is 515 miles nearer to Quebec from Britain than to New
Presently, skirting the wooded shores of the Isle of Orleans, we turn round
a bend and see before us the great cape on which stands the ancient city of Quebec. So
this is the Gateway to Canada, you say or simply feel, and that majestic impression of Quebec
may remain with you for many a day. Not even in the London of the sonnet can you see
at one glance so much of " Ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples " as you can from
your liner at Quebec. For they are all here, and all near. That " nearness " to Canada is a
new experience worth having.

(Above) Chateau Frontenac
(At side) A Caleche, an archaic vehicle
that visitors love
OLD wine doesn't go with new bottles,
so they say, but Old Quebec does go
most beautifully with New Canada. It is
a never-ending delight to discover the
mellowing romance of that old-world haunt
of history in its rich contrasts with all that
is modern. Quaint old streets, very narrow
and with venerable buildings at every turn,
fascinate the eye and the imagination.
Houses that may have heard the footsteps
of Lord Nelson, when he came to Quebec
as a very young naval officer, lean over a
little wearily, as it may seem. The actual
house to which was brought the dead
General Montcalm after the battle on the
Heights of Abraham may be visited.
Here is a convent as secluded as in the
Middle Ages : there a monastery : over there
a battery of antiquated cannon.   And above
all towers the Chateau Frontenac, modern
in every detail of hotel service or equipment, yet wedded to the romantic charm of
Ancient Quebec by the subtle skill of clever
architecture. Almost might you expect
the clarion call of a herald to announce
your party as you enter the great arched
portals. Above might well be men-at-arms
lining the battlements. Within, though in
the midst of the acme of modern hotel
equipment, you might almost find yourself
ordering a tankard with " Ho, Varlet ! A
Flagon of Sack."
While at Quebec time should be allowed
for visits to Montmorency Falls, 185 feet in
height, Kent House, at one time the summer residence of H.R.H. the Duke of Kent,
and Ste Anne de Beaupre, containing the
shrine of the mother of the Blessed Virgin. These pictures illustrate the
comfort of the train journey
across Canada. They show a
Canadian Pacific Dining Car—the
Lounge Car attached to transcontinental trains—a Drawing-
Room in a Sleeping-Car, and {lower
picture)  a  Standard   Sleeping-Car
A STANDARD Sleeper consists of so many sections
per car—varying according to type. Each section
consists of two comfortable seats, facing each other.
The aisle runs down the centre of the car.
At night the porter in charge of the car converts this
into sleeping space by sliding together the seats to make
the lower berth, letting down the upper berth, inserting
the headboards between each section, adjusting the coat-
hangers and clothes nets, and making up with bedclothes. In front of each section is hung a heavy curtain,
with a thin inner one if desired, and this ensures
complete privacy. A small ladder is used to gain access
to the upper berth. Both upper and lower berths have
reading lights.
A Compartment is exactly the same as a section, except
that it is a private room entered from the corridor by
a door.    It also contains wash-basin, etc.
A Drawing-room is exactly the same as a compartment, but also has a sofa berth and a private lavatory.
5 The Beach at St. Andrews
(At side) Algonquin Hotel
INTRODUCING St. Andrews-by-the-
Sea is like extolling to an audience a
world-famous person. The smiling little
town slips down between the St. Croix
River and Passamaquoddy Bay, a stone's
throw from the coast of Maine. It is also
a widely-recognized social centre, and the
hotel is patronized every summer by leading society people from all over Canada
and the United States, many of whom
have their own palatial cottages. The
Algonquin Hotel commands a glorious
view of the bay that washes St. Andrews
on three sides.
Tennis courts, bowling greens and putting greens are kept in perfect condition.
Bathing? Of course ! The repentant
ghost of Katie Mcintosh calls you to her
cove. To obviate tidal variation, a dam
has been constructed and this ensures a
safe and even water-level. Golf is,
perhaps, the most popular diversion, and
with reason, for St. Andrews has probably
the finest seaside golf course in Canada.
Saint John is the largest city in the province of New Brunswick and is also the
oldest incorporated town in British North
America, being founded by de Monts as
"Arcadia" in 1604. Of its harbour
facilities it is justifiably proud. It has one
of the largest dry docks in the world,
1,150 feet long, and has a large trade with
the West Indies and Europe. Amongst
items of interest should be mentioned
the Reversing Falls, Cobbett's Well, the
Martello  Tower,  and  Rockwood  Park. 1

The New Pines Hotel, Digby
(At side) Bullock transport in Halifax
THE Province of Nova Scotia is one
of the finest playgrounds in North
America. Its peerless summer climate,
its historical background, its unspoiled
scenic loveliness, the diversity of its
attractions and the comfort and inexpensive-
ness of its many resorts make holidaying
there a delightful experience that will be
eagerly repeated.
Arrived at Halifax, even the short drive
from station to hotel will impress you with
the picturesque harmony of ancient and
modern buildings. The Citadel, the only
one of Halifax's many forts open to visitors,
rises 271 feet above the town and overlooks
one of the finest harbours in the world.
Between Halifax and Digby is situated the
well-known " Evangeline " country, scene
of the dramatic story immortalized by
The New Pines Hotel, Digby, is Nova
Scotia's premier summer resort. Swimming,
tennis, golf, bowling alleys and billiard-
room are among the many attractions.
Within easy reach of Digby is Annapolis
Royal, established in 1605, and its old
fort constructed at that time is still in a
very good state of preservation. Other
popular trips are those to Bear River and
Smith's  Cove.
Yarmouth, at Nova Scotia's south-west
corner, lies 240 statute miles from Boston,
which is the usual starting point for tourists
from the Eastern United States. It is a
busy clearing-station for both passengers
and freight. Otta
Parliament Buildings and
Big Ben of Canada
OTTAWA, the capital of the Dominion of
Canada, stands on a high bluff looking
across the river to the Laurentian Mountains, its site characterized by a grandeur
appropriate to its national significance.
Here is the meeting place of the Senate and
House of Commons, the residence of the
Governor-General, and headquarters of the
various administrative departments of the
Government. The Parliament Buildings,
largely reconstructed after a disastrous fire
that destroyed them during the war, are a
stately Gothic pile; from the centre rises
the beautiful Peace Tower, containing the
world's largest carillon of bells.
There are many other government buildings in Ottawa worth seeing, such as the
Royal Mint, the National Gallery, and the
Victoria Museum. In the Lower Town is
concentrated an enormous pulp and paper
industry. The city is circled by miles and
miles of charming boulevards and driveways, with many parks.
Ottawa itself is a comparatively new city,
having had but little fame until Queen
Victoria, in the early sixties, chose it as a
kind of " compromise candidate " to avoid
the clash between rival claims of the
provinces of Lower and Upper Canada.
Quite close to Ottawa is one of the
greatest playgrounds both in winter and
summer—the Gatineau Valley. Here are
splendid fishing and hunting facilities, and
the scenery rivals that of Switzerland,
whilst the valley is a paradise for those
seeking  recreation  and  amusement.

Main Cabin,
Chilet-Bungaiow Camp
French    River
FRENCH River is in the heart of the
primitive backwoods country, and
affords English visitors a chance they
might not otherwise get of seeing a little
of what bush life is like. Perched on a cliff
overlooking a broad river that sweeps down
between grey-blue rocky walls is a group of
chalet-bungalow cottages. The group of
cottages is the famous French River Chalet-
Bungalow Camp, situated within 200 yards
of the station, the camp commands a
magnificent view of the main channel of
the French River.
For the benefit of those who do not know
what a Chalet-Bungalow camp is, let us say
that it has nothing at all to do with tents.
On the contrary, it is like living in one's
private house, without the bother of meals
or servants. Each little bungalow is self-
contained and cosily furnished; some have
two rooms, some one. Porches and deep
wicker chairs make it easy for you to live
the verandah life; illumination is electric
light, not candles, and maid service relieves
you of all work.
When the bell rings for meals, you seek
the club-house with its spacious dining and
recreation rooms. Afterwards writing-
desks tempt the energetic, while the comfortable wicker chairs about the great stone
fireplace of the lounge-room satisfy all
longings. From the verandah little winding
paths lead away to the bungalows, to the
dock, to the station, and to the tennis court.
In the evening, the recreation room is in
popular demand for dancing. EASTERN CANADA and UNITED   STATES   TOUR

such golf! Fishing ? The vicinity of the
camp is an angler's paradise. In eddy and
backwater, among the sedges skirting the
shore, in the shadow of huge boulders
that block the channel, lurk wily old
" muskies," great northern pike, large
and small-mouthed bass, pickerel, and other
game-fish, worthy foe for any angler.
And as for golf. You don't take a car.
If you are energetic, you pack your clubs
in a canoe; if you are not, you take an outboard motor-boat or the camp launch and
go ashore at the first tee. And if you are
neither a fisherman nor a golfer; if you
neither  canoe nor  swim nor play tennis,
there is the quiet and rest of Nature to
banish the cares of city life.
The camp has a float, diving-board and
bath-houses. At the foot of the links is a
beautiful sandy bathing beach. Amongst
the woods are some delightful walks, while
a variety of short canoe trips can be made,
and launch trips are arranged daily.
The guides who work for the camp are
carefully selected, and for the most part are
Indians, Ojibway and Nipissing, from the
Pickerel Reserve. They are of particularly
fine type, and upon a reasonable interest
and knowledge of wild life being shown,
will lose the taciturnity which is an Indian
characteristic, and speak fluently and eagerly
of the life they know so well.

General view of Toronto
(At side) The Provincial Parliament
THEY call Toronto "The Queen
City," and she is enthroned in the
hearts of her citizens. Her arms embrace a
beautiful curve of Lake Ontario, and she
wears her Island Park like a jewel on her
bosom. Others of her jewels are superb
buildings, supreme among which is the
Royal York Hotel, largest hotel in the
British Empire, well known as the social
centre of one of the friendliest cities in the
world to its visitors.
From the high tower of the Royal York
all the wide panorama of Toronto may be
viewed, revealing a vast extent of residential
and of industrial areas, and a down-town
section distinguished by roomy streets and
splendid modern structures.    An extensive
area for industrial uses, reclaimed from the
Lake, is rapidly building up. The National
Exhibition Grounds cover 350 acres with
permanent buildings, and each year over
two million visitors enjoy the Exhibition.
The Amusement Park entertains its thousands every day, with every device in
modern gaiety creation, and a perfect
swimming and bathing equipment.
Toronto is an educational and publishing
centre, and her University—with Hart
House, a very nerve centre of culture—her
Art Galleries, Museums and Libraries give
light and leading far and wide in Canada.
Notable churches also, she has, fine
golf courses and race tracks, baseball
grounds and ice rinks.
13 TO leave Toronto by Lake Steamer for
Niagara is to gain a fine and characteristic view of the " Queen City's " boldly
serrated sky-line. This, and a peep at the
Island Park pleasure haunt which lies like
a water-side holiday centre within twenty
minutes of the city's business hub, add local
interest for the visitor to Toronto en route
for Eastern Canada's world-recognized
show-piece, Niagara Falls.
After the wide Lake, and the deep placid
channel of thefNiagara River at Queenston,
the terrific turbulence of the rapids in the
Gorge, and the sinister-seeming swirl of
the Whirlpool, gradually prepare the visitor
for the stupendous vision of the Falls
themselves. No two people ever see
Niagara exactly alike : no one can express
in words the impression experienced.  Some
see only the sublimity of the tremendous
cataract: some dwell on the reckless
adventurousness that would drift over the
brink in a barrel; and some study the
commercial aspect of the Falls in power
At night the Falls are illuminated with
multi-coloured flood-lighting, million-candle
power strong, made by their own force.
The sight is theatrical in effect, intensifying
the majesty of the scene in its natural
grandeur when the flood-lights fade. That
a phenomenon so little altered from its
primitive state should be so richly surrounded by the comforts and charms of
modern civilization is an aspect of interest;
and the countryside about Niagara entertains its visitors with kindly vistas of town
and village, as well as with historic scenes.

DETROIT is famed throughout the
world as the headquarters of the
motor trade in the United States, and it
might well be said that to a very great
extent the city owes its rapid growth to this
industry. However, this has not spoilt the
aspect from a residential standpoint, as, with
its unique park attractions, it is one of the
most beautiful American cities. Visitors
must not think that the industrial activity
has, in any way, detracted from the interest
of the city from a holiday point of view,
the fact being that it has added to the
many and varied charms of Detroit and its
Detroit was founded in 1701 and is
situated between Lakes St. Clair and Erie;
it has the Detroit River running within its
boundaries   for   11   miles,   and   the   River
Rouge wends its way for a distance of
5 miles. Visitors cannot fail to be interested
in the large areas of native forest growth,
the many miles of lakes connected by canals,
and the large zoological park and aquarium.
Sport has not been neglected; athletic
fields, baseball grounds and golf courses
are to be found at convenient points, whilst
there are free camps for the accommodation
and enjoyment of those seeking relaxation
from hotel life.
Detroit possesses the distinctive feature
of being <c just across the river from
Canada," and here the visitor may enjoy
the interesting experience of studying the
similarities and the differences in the ways
of Canada and her great neighbour, the
United States. To appreciate the little
contrasts is to increase travel wisdom.

CHICAGO is ideally situated at the
southern end of Lake Michigan. Who
has not heard of this remarkable city, the
commercial and railroad centre of the
United States, the second largest and one of
the most impressive of America ? To most
foreign visitors and to many Americans the
growth of this city is its most impressive
feature. Within a space of a little
more than one hundred years it has grown
from a military post of a few houses
to be the second city of America and
the fourth in size among the cities of the
Hundreds   of acres   of land  have  been
reclaimed from Lake Michigan and transformed into a great pleasure-ground of
green parks and charming lagoons, flower-
gardens, fountains and elm-lined drives.
Chicago in the last two decades has become
a beautiful city. It has outgrown the old
" Loop " that brought everything into one
congested oblong, and has spread out into
lovely suburbs. Especially to the north are
these suburbs wonderful, stretching for
miles in close proximity to the Lake.
The park and boulevard system that has
been planned, and carried on over a
period of many years, has added to the
16 New    York
WITH its myriad of tremendous buildings, New York is at first overwhelming; you stray down the lower end of
Manhattan, where structures raise their
heads sky high, making you dizzy trying
to gaze upwards to see the top stories, yet
considering this, the city, notwithstanding
its size, is comparatively easy and comfortable to explore. One solution is to take
one of the tours run by the sight-seeing bus
companies. These cover and intersect the
whole city and places of interest are pointed
out during the journey.
If, on the other hand, other means of
travel are preferred, the subways, street
cars, elevated trains, buses, cabs and ferries
are at your service.   Wherever you wish to
go there is one or more methods of conveyance. Wall Street and the financial
district, Broadway, Fifth and Park Avenues,
three of the world's most famous thoroughfares, Riverside Drive, Coney Island, Hudson River Boulevard, Grant's Tomb, Central Park, the Battery, the Statue of Liberty,
the Ghetto and Greenwich Village are only
a very few of the wonders of this great city,
whilst boat excursions run to the New
Jersey Coast and Long Island.
One sight that should on no account be
missed is that from the yachts that encircle
Manhattan, with a view of the skyline of
New York from every angle, and passing
under the great Brooklyn Bridge you view
the great docks used by the Atlantic liners.

Summer Street
{Photograph by Swing
BOSTON, the capital city of Massachusetts, and the hub of " New England,"
is very rich in tradition and is historically
the most famous in the United States.
Railway and steamship services radiate
from here to every city and town in New
England. With its natural harbour, to all
intents and purposes land-locked, Boston
may well be said to be high among the
important  ports   in   the  world.
Perhaps the most important industry is
wool; in fact, since manufacturing started
in the United States, Boston has easily held
her place in this market; approximately half
the total amount imported comes through
her hands, and the warehouses have been
constructed so as to be capable of storing
somewhere in the vicinity of a hundred
million pounds. Boston is also the headquarters of the boot and shoe industry.
Visitors have an abundance of interesting
places to see, among them being the State
House, conspicuous with its gilded dome,
the Public Library, Harvard Medical
School, City Hall, Charles River Basin,
Bunker Hill Monument, and the historic
Boston Common, a tract of land containing nearly 50 acres. Then there are the
Public Gardens adjacent to the Common,
and Franklin Park, including, as it does,
a zoological garden, an aquarium, together
with a golf course. Many other parks,
playgrounds, squares and bathing beaches
are dotted about the city.
18 MONTREAL is the world's greatest
wheat - exporting centre, and the
financial hub of Canada. With the mighty
St. Lawrence a mile wide at her water-
frontage Montreal manages the commerce of
a vast and prosperous domain, importing,
exporting, financing and directing economic
factors of supreme importance in Canada's
business life. It is the headquarters of the
great Canadian Pacific system.
Here are head offices of the chief banks,
the insurance firms, and the wholesale
houses. Montreal is a city where big
business is done daily and expeditiously.
Dominated by the natural beauty of its
Mountain, which is preserved as a park and
offers delightful walks and wonderful views,
Montreal is also a city of great charm.
There are historical aspects here, which
would fill volumes. On many an ancient
camping ground where now the latest model
automobiles pass and repass, Indians used
to plan their attacks on the invading white
men. Religious devotees of old set forth
from here to convert the savages of the
interior. Fur traders founded here the
beginnings of Canada's commerce—the
bustling business you sense about you in
these modern streets stirring restlessly under
their tall buildings. Glimpses of old world
and of new will greet you at every turn
in Montreal, and its size and extent will
well support its claim to over a million
