St. Andrews by-the-Sea,
New Brunswick
Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia Tea time at The Algonquin, St. Andrews by-the-sea NOVA SCOTIA
Historically and culturally "Down East Canada" strongly
resembles New England.   Economy of speech, quick wit and dry
humour is characteristic of the people.   It was in Nova Scotia,
at Windsor, that Thomas Chandler Haliburton, recognized
as the forerunner of American humour, wrote his famous
series on "The Clockmaker".   Sam Slick, "the hero", was the
prototype of many characters well known to students of
early American novels.   Canada's easternmost provinces
have the charm of infinite variety.   New Brunswick, just across
the border from Maine; and Nova Scotia; almost an island,
were among the earliest settled parts of Canada.  Their
scenery ranges from rugged headlands to smooth sand beaches;
from game filled evergreen forests to ordered vistas of
orchards and meadows; from modern highways to leafy
curving country lanes.   There is golf; swimming; sailing, inland or
at sea; fishing, in the lakes and streams for which Nova Scotia
and New Brunswick are famous, or offshore for quarter-ton
fighting Tuna; motoring; cycling.
Whether you choose New Brunswick or Nova Scotia for your
first holiday in Canada's East Coast playground you will
best decide after you have read the following pages.   But,
whichever you choose, Canadian Pacific summer hotels —
operated to the same exacting standards as the world-
famous year round Canadian Pacific chain — are ready to
provide the comfortable quarters, good food and social
amenities that are the important background.
At St. Andrews by-the-sea, New Brunswick, there is
The Algonquin; at Digby, Nova Scotia, the Digby Pines.   Both of
these overlook the sheltered Bay of Fundy.   At Yarmouth, Nova
Scotia, the Lakeside Inn is sited on the Milo Lake chain, close
to the sea.   In the grounds of the Digby Pines and the
Lakeside Inn there are cottages, staffed by the hotels, for
those who like to combine family privacy with the bonhomie
of summer hotel life.   At Kentville, centre of the Annapolis
Valley beloved of Longfellow, is the Cornwallis Inn, a modern
year-round hotel that serves as headquarters for motor
exploration of historic countryside, shopping and golf.
NEW BRUNSWICK The curving driveway spells a welcome to The Algonquin.   Broad
verandahs lend their shade to leisured contemplation of well-kept
lawns and colourful flower beds.   Village shops are noted for quaint
New Brunswick handicrafts. 7ke £l9c
The Algonquin, summer home year after year to the discriminating, is
gracious as a manor house.   Red roofed, its white walls are patterned
with half-timbering.   Broad verandahs face sun and sea.   This social
centre "Down East" in Canada is truly Canadian Pacific in its
appointments, its services, its comfort and — above all — its cooking.
Overnight from Montreal and Boston and as close to you as your rail
connections with these centres, The Algonquin is styled for leisured
pleasure.   High above the fishing village of St. Andrews by-the-sea,
New Brunswick, The Algonquin has never known hay fever.
Its seaside golf courses — a ladies' nine as well as an eighteen worthy of
the name St. Andrews — are noted for their challenging fairways and
picturesque greens.   Swimming, fishing, tennis, dancing, movies, indoor
bowling, billiards, are all privately yours in The Algonquin
or its spacious grounds.
You can have tea or snacks as you sun-tan after your swim.   There are
lovely walks —through the village —leafy lanes —along the sands and
rocks of tide-washed Passamaquoddy Bay.

~ THREE — 'Companionable Lounge"
"Generous Windows" Katy & Clove
Quiet elegance, an accent on comfort, the glow of log fires, tasteful
decoration, alcoves that attract bridge players, restfulness — these
characterize the companionable lounge.
In the dining room gay light colours enhance the all day sun that streams
through generous windows that picture the attractive surroundings.
Another Algonquin asset for holiday makers is the rare combination of a
bathing beach safe for children, pleasant for the not too expert
swimmer, and attractive to athletes who like a challenge and a chance
to perfect diving form.   Katy's Cove, The Algonquin's private beach,
boasts these attractions — its own tea house, fresh bright sand, ample
private dressing accommodation, an alert and expert staff.   Tidal
control-gates at the entrance to the Cove maintain a constant depth of
ever-changing invigorating sea water — all this just a five minute walk
through shady lanes down the hill from The Algonquin.   There is parking
space if you prefer to drive. Relaxing, healthful sleep crowns
a vacation day.   And that's
what you get at The Algonquin.
Cool offshore breezes bring you
the scent of the woods.   The
best man can do in the design of
mattresses, coupled with the salty
tang of the sea, combines to
make summer nights a pleasure.
It sounds Arcadian?   It is Arcadian.
Arcadian in the simplicity and
cushiony comfort of your bedroom;
in the freshness of country linen.
But it's metropolitan, too.
Metropolitan in the excellence of
the room service, in meticulous,
typical Canadian Pacific housekeeping, in the steam heat at
your finger-tip control if cooler
nights call for it. Most of these pictures
add up to— appetite!
The sea air, golf,
bowling, walks around
the island-studded
coasts all make you
more than ready
for seaside meals.
In Canadian Pacific
hotels you will enjoy
sea food prepared
by knowing cooks
long experienced in
preparing delicacies
from the waters that
surround Canada's
down east playground.
— SEVEN — A/ova. Scotia GaiU
For your Nova Scotia holiday Canadian Pacific operates the Digby Pines, at Digby;
Lakeside Inn at Yarmouth, and Cornwallis Inn at Kentville, the last-named a year
round hotel which serves as summer headquarters for many Nova Scotia visitors.   Sea
surrounded, save for a narrow isthmus, the long indented coast of Nova Scotia is
noted for bathing beaches, picturesque fishing villages and sporty deep sea fishing.
Off the southern coast, Wedgeport, not far from Lakeside Inn, provides boats, guides
and tackle for world famous Tuna grounds at Soldiers' Rip where the annual Tuna
tournament is held.   The province abounds with historical sites, many of which have
been restored as museums and recapture the romantic flavour of early North
American history. The Annapolis Valley, immortalized by Longfellow in his "Evangeline"
is famous for its beautiful
countryside and its apple orchards.
The highspot is Grand Pre, site
of historic Memorial Park
containing Evangeline's Well, a
Memorial Hall and the statue
of Evangeline wrought by the
late Philippe Hebert, Canadian
sculptor in whose veins flowed
the blood of an exiled Acadian
family, and his son, Henri.
Annapolis Royal and Lower
Granville have many treasures
for the historically minded —
all of these are within easy
motoring distance of the three
hotels by good roads.   All enjoy
an equable summer climate
tempered by sea breezes.

The Digby Pines? with sun-trapped pool and clustering
cottages. Lower left, "Princess Helene" in Digby Gut.
You have your choice at the Digby Pines — family privacy in one of the
well-equipped cottages, or all the fun and jollity of resort hotel life.
Or you can combine them.   Hotel and cottages cluster in a park-like
acreage on a rise of ground that gives you a splendid view of the
Annapolis Basin, a natural harbour large enough to float the battlefleets
of the world.   There are fast tennis courts down the slope that leads to
the beach, and to bring your pleasure even closer sea water is warmed
and piped into a glass-screened open air pool a stone's throw from the
hotel.   If golf is your holiday aim, the Digby Pines is ready for you with
an excellent 1 8 hole golf course nearby.
And in the evenings, dance music, movies, and a well-equipped games
room mark the transition from healthy sun-filled days to
tranquil, sleep-filled nights. (Left) At Port Royal, Samuel de
Champlain established his "Habitation". Today
on the same spot stands a colourful replica
that brings to mind the early days of North
American colonization. (Above) Sun and fun
in the open air pool at Digby Pines. Pastel-tinted sunsets over nearby
headlands and beaches, or moon-
drenched evenings on the balcony
of the Digby Pines, enhance the romantic
flavour of a holiday in Nova Scotia.

"Picturesque", an overworked
word, really applies to the
country surrounding The Digby
Pines.   Within easy driving
distance are Fort Anne, at
Annapolis Royal, once the Officers
Mess of the Fort, now an interesting
museum; and the Champlain
Habitation, a few miles by road
or water.   Every evening, whether
you have a cottage in the
grounds or live in the hotel, the
sociable lounge is filled with
gaiety, the Games Room attracts
the active.   Outdoors the endless
whisper of waves on the shingled
beach is a romantic background
motif to walks in the hotel's
wooded acres or along the
curving seaside roads.

Southward, by Dominion Atlantic Railway train or the provincial
highway, through the church-crowned villages of the
"French Shore", is Yarmouth.
A mile north of this Maritime entrance-way to Canada for
steamships from the U.S.A., is the Lakeside Inn, another Canadian
Pacific summer resort.   Here, on the three Milo Lakes, and within
sound of the sea, surrounded by cottages maintained for its
guests, the hotel is characterized by warm friendliness and
informal charm.   An unusual feature is the flotilla of 17-
foot, Marconi-rigged "Acadian Class" yachts, designed by
Cox and Stevens, maintained for guests' use.   Many visitors
have had their first lessons "in sail" at Lakeside Inn.
Canoeing, swimming, fishing — fresh water and deep sea —
and golf vie with motoring for your entertainment.

FOURTEEN There's a romantic appeal in the
many fishing villages, rocky
promontories, beaches and coves
that reward short motor drives
from Lakeside Inn.   The sea,
your playground in this holiday
country, is a generous provider
to hard-working fisherfolk.
Bright sunshine and breeze-flung
spray, born limitless miles to
the south and east on the broad
rollers of the mighty Atlantic
Ocean, spell health and happiness
to Nova Scotia visitors.
Not even modern colour
photography can reproduce
faithfully the lovely
silver-grey of shingled
buildings weathered by
years of sea air.

sites makes it an ideal
centre for a motor
