QcudKc According to an old adage, "it is better to travel
hopefully than to arrive''. That may have been true in
the days of panniers, pillions and post-chaises —
today, it is better to travel comfortably and to arrive
refreshed — the Canadian Pacific way.
This is the day of air-conditioned, picture-windowed
steel coaches, parlour cars, dining cars,
observation cars — of economical upper and lower
berths, roomettes, bedrooms — of compartments and
On this page travel comfort is shown in the
privacy of the roomette (above) and genial spaciousness
of coach travel, with foam-rubber-cushioned reclinable
seats that adjust to suit your mood. mm
Low in cost — high in comfort, the roomette, a
completely equipped miniature room for day and night
use, is illustrated at the top of this page. Ingeniously
contrived as a sitting room by day and an equally
private bedroom by night, your roomette has a
full-length bed; disappearing wash-basin; toilet;
wardrobe; luggage-space and plenty of lights
and electric outlets.
Most economical form of night travel is the standard
sleeping car berth — upper or lower. Partially
enclosed by day, a section of four seats forms two
full-length berths at night, each curtained securely,
equipped with clothes-hangers, stowage space, its own
air-conditioning controls, reading lights, spring mattress,
fresh linen and porter's call button.

Canada, island-guarded by Newfoundland—
lapped by the western waters of the Atlantic, and
Vancouver Island—eastern-most of the fabulous
islands of the Pacific, is 3,000 miles and more of
beauty-filled countryside; bustling productive
cities; game-filled lakes and forests; grain-gilded
prairies; glacier-topped mountains; teeming
rivers; lakes and health.
Twin threads of steel link the seas, serve farms,
forests, factories, open remote beauty to the
visitor. The Canadian Pacific Railway—seven
decades ago the flux that fused scattered
provinces into a great nation—today is the
world's most complete travel organization.
Nova Scotia, most easterly of the mainland provinces,
counts an incredibly long coast-line due to its almost
island formation; the fragrant Annapolis Valley; the
world's highest tides; game fishing — inland and
deep sea; hunting; an historical background immortalized
by Longfellow's "Evangeline"; one of the world's
great harbours amongst its blessings. Canadian
Pacific hotels are; The Digby Pines, at Digby;
Lakeside Inn, Yarmouth — open in summer;
Cornwallis Inn, Kentville, year round headquarters for
business and pleasure. Good hotels characterize
the cities and holiday accommodation to suit all
tastes and purses is available.
The Dominion Atlantic Railway unites Halifax and

Cosmopolitan Montreal, second largest French-speaking
city of the world; ancient Quebec, only walled city
on the North American continent; the pleasure-filled
Laurentian Mountains; the mighty St. Lawrence River;
forests; prosperous farms; manufacturing centres;
quaint villages; a culture four centuries old —
these are the Province of Quebec. French Canada's
appeal is universal — the year round. Lakes, rivers,
mountains — well-supplied with accommodation to fit
taste and budget, are popular for hunting, fishing, riding,
swimming or hiking holidays. Cities, towns and villages,
famous for ecclesiastical architecture, tempt shoppers
with attractive typical French-Canadian handicrafts.
The Chateau Frontenac, "trade-mark of Quebec", a
metropolitan Canadian Pacific hotel, is the focal point
for sightseeing, golf, fishing, the scenic Gaspe coast in
summer; headquarters for skiing at Lac Beauport
and Valcartier in winter.

Winnipeg, history-making gateway to the western
plains, capital of Manitoba, challenges the visitor.
Sited on two mighty rivers, this modern city is a great
manufacturing and railway centre with wide streets
that reflect the spaciousness of the wheat-filled
prairies. Northward within easy reach is Lake Winnipeg,
holiday haven for the granary province. Through
Manitoba reminders of the pioneer days still exist
in Hudson Bay Company trading stations and Mounted
Police posts. The capital, once known as Fort Garry,
preserves the past by maintaining the Fort as a
gardened museum ~— and for your comfort Canadian
Pacific operates the Royal Alexandra Hotel. Portage
la Prairie, Brandon, Riding Mountain National Park,
show other aspects of middle-western Manitoba.
H»: As old as Canada, as new as tomorrow, Canadian Pacific is more than Canada's
first transcontinental railway—Canadian Pacific is the world's most complete

.^.^^mmr'^^'     v- Alberta, once known as the foothill province, where
the rising wheat plains slope into the fringe of the
Canadian Rockies and wheat-growing gives way to
cattle-ranching, is fast becoming the oil centre of Canada.
Calgary, frontier city famed from early days, now is
a manufacturing and residential centre on the Canadian
Pacific transcontinental line. Here the Hotel Palliser
represents the Canadian Pacific chain. Edmonton,
provincial capital, connects the Canadian Pacific
northern route from Winnipeg with Calgary, Medicine Hat,
Lethbridge, Macleod and other holiday fields.
Seven parks — Nemiskam, Wawaskesy, Wainright,
Wood Buffalo Park and Esk Lake under the province;
Banff and Jasper National Parks and the international
Glacier Peace Park — conserve wild life.
Ranch holidays, riding on foothill trails once trodden
only by Indian ponies, hunting for big game,
shooting for birds, climbing, fishing, await you in Alberta. IpHftftll
Nature surpassed herself in the Canadian Rockies.
Visible as distant snow-topped peaks from Calgary, the
eastern slopes rise sharply forty miles to the west and
gradually enclose the Canadian Pacific main line as
it traces the ever faster flowing Bow River upwards to
its source. For more than 400 miles the spectacular
railway line makes its way through gorges,
rock cuts, broad peaks, lush valleys, glaciers,
cataracts and hissing, spume-crested white water.
In the heart of this mountain grandeur Canadian
Pacific has developed a holiday area unsurpassed on
the North American continent
Shadowed by Mount Rundle, Cascade Mountain, Tunnel
Mountain, Sulphur Mountain, the Bow and Spray
Rivers unite two valleys. At their meeting point
Banff Springs Hotel, a Canadian Pacific castle,
overlooks the valleys, dominates Banff, Alberta.
Baronial in appearance, this luxury hotel is host, summer
after summer, to guests from ail over the world.
Well-marked trails, magnificent mountain highways,
18 holes of mile-high golf, tennis courts, outdoor and
indoor swimming pools lead to enjoyment. Climbing,
trail-riding, camera-hunting — for this is a National
Park where wild life is protected — motoring, and
sight-seeing from the Alpine lift on nearby Mount
Norquay fill days with healthful pleasure, nights with
sound sleep. Deer, elk, moose, beaver, bear are plentiful
— and unafraid in this boundless sanctuary. In
winter and spring deep snows, long slopes, open high
country, test skiers' skill.
Good year-round accommodation is available in the
Canadian Rockies. Forty miles westward, but a near neighbour in Banff
National Park, Lake Louise, Alberta, is the gateway to
another mountain world. Southward, a mile away
and 1000 feet higher is the mountain-ringed lake and
Chateau Lake Louise, Canadian Pacific owned. Luxurious
as Banff, in keeping with its setting, the Chateau
is headquarters for riding, boating and climbing. Swiss
guides who know every inch of the mountains are
available with climbing equipment for real climbs,
sure-footed mountain ponies know every inch of
wild-flower bordered trails. Victoria Glacier, Mount
Temple, the Beehive, overlooking the Chateau, the Plain
of Six Glaciers, Lakes in the Clouds, the Valley of
the Ten Peaks are nearby. Northward — a daytime
return trip from Chateau Lake Louise on the
Banff-Jasper Highway lies the magnificent Columbia
Icefield, 150 square miles of ice formed by the age-old
confluence of the Athabaska, Dome and Saskatchewan
The Great Divide, backbone of Canada, Lake Wapta —
birthplace of the Kicking Horse River — Yoho Valley,
these mark "the blue jeans country". r

Mainland British Columbia, pierced by great rivers that
make their way down the western slopes of the coastal
range to the Pacific Ocean, counts mining, orchard and
truck-farming; lumbering, manufacturing and fishing
amongst its occupations. In addition to Mount Revelstoke,
Glacier and Kootenay National Parks there are 17
provincial parks — including Tweedsmuir, largest
wilderness park on the continent.
Vancouver, largest city and Canada's greatest Pacific
port, is the terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway's
two routes through the Rocky, Selkirk, Cascade and
Coast Mountains. The southern scenic route, which
