Quebec City from the air
THE fingers of modernism have but
lightly touched the quaint old city
of Champlain, leaving unspoiled its
very definite if indefinable charm,
its natural beauty and the historic landmarks which date the centuries of its
growth. Up hill and down hill it goes,
this old city of Quebec, with a Gallic
abandon and the unexpected always
awaiting you around the corner. Its
inhabitants will naively tell you that their
city is the most beautiful in the world—not
boastfully but with that assurance which
comes from implicit belief. Perched as
it is on Cape Diamond, over which it
spreads itself, and commanding a superb
view of the St. Lawrence, few will contest
its claim to be one of the most picturesque
of cities.
Half of its charm is its citizens. They
are intensely lovable, these French Canadians, and intensely proud—proud of their
traditions and the part their ancestors
played in the exploration of the North
American continent. And justly so. From
Quebec on the north to the Rockies on the
west and the Gulf of Mexico on the south
their explorations extended.

Historic Background
What a gallery they make — Jolliet and
Marquette, who in 1673 discovered the
Mississippi; LaSalle who nine years later
took possession of its vast basin in the
name of the King of France; de Bienville,
founder of New Orleans; La Motte Cadillac, builder of Detroit, and La Verendrye
who carried his discoveries to the foothills
of the Rocky Mountains. Where the
explorer led, the missionary followed. Not
without good cause is Quebec referred to
as the "cradle of North American civilization" and not without reason does it attract
each year an increasing number of visitors
from every part of the continent.
For those who have eyes to read, the
chequered history of the old city itself is
written on its every line. Statues commemorate its discoverer, Jacques Cartier, and
its founder, Samuel de Champlain. The
Ursuline Convent perpetuates the fame
of the "Theresa of New France", Mere
Marie de V Incarnation, who in 1639
brought a band of Ursuline nuns and sisters of the Hotel Dieu to Quebec. Forsaking all that was dear to them at home,
Printed in Canada, 1930.
/&?yj£j
J <£* QUEBEC DISTRICT andths
they came to minister not only to their
fellow countrymen but to the Indians as
well. The first Canadian bishop, Laval, is
commemorated by a University.
The name of Frontenac, under whose
administration New France achieved a
political meaning in the mother country,
is recalled in the Chateau; the hatred
inspired by at least one of the Intendants—
Francois Bigot—is immortalized in the
story of the Chien d'Or. Turn where you
will and the scroll of history unrolls.
A Unique Symbol
Stroll over the Plains of Abraham with
its statue of Wolfe or visit that old-world
house on St. Louis street, reputedly the
headquarters of Montcalm. Immediately
you are reminded of that epic struggle
between French and British for mastery
in the New World. Better still visit that
simple monument in the Governor's
Garden on Dufferin Terrace which commemorates the gallantry of victor and
vanquished alike and symbolizes the friendship which has since existed between the
French and English speaking inhabitants
not only of Quebec but of the Dominion.
Such is the canvas on which the modern
city stands out.
Variety is its dominant characteristic—
variety in the architecture of the buildings
and variety in the people themselves.
You might suppose that in such a very old
city as Quebec the people would be content
to live in the past. Nothing of the kind.
Quebec is a progressive city with its shops
and amusements, its clubs and recreations
like any other city. But it has escaped
the bugbear of standardization. Where
can one see such individuality on the
streets? Green-sashed scholars from the
Seminary go gaily along, or perhaps a
soutaned priest, a pensive nun fingering
her rosary or a bustling business man.
Their very individuality sets you speculating on their aspirations, their ambitions
or their very mode of looking at things.
French is of course the language of the
majority of the citizens but there is a
very progressive English speaking community every bit as jealous of their city
as their French speaking neighbors.
Unending Attractions
Then you must see the sights which the
city offers its guests. Dufferin Terrace ?
Yes. That's the quarter mile boardwalk
which runs along the front of your hotel—
the world-famous Chateau Frontenac. It
commands a superb view of the St. Lawrence—at any hour of the day, though
perhaps it is at its best in the gathering
dusk whfen the band of the local regiment—
U! EASTERN TOWNSHIPS
Haymaking on the Island of Orleans
17EU
the Vingt-deuxieme—is discoursing martial airs and all Quebec is idling. On the
right the Citadel towers, down below is
lower town with its high-roofed, close-
built houses; away to the left is the mouth
of the St. Lawrence; before you is the
broad band of the St. Lawrence with the
twinkling lights of the Levis ferry boats or
of some Duchess liner on her way to
Montreal.
How perfectly the Chateau blends with
its surroundings! Of course it is a dominating structure—it houses sixteen hundred guests—but the architects who
planned it had a very real appreciation of
the site it was to adorn. Standing where
the old Chateau St. Louis stood, residence
of the French Governors, it is conceived in
the spirit of a sixteenth century French
Chateau and carried out in warm, Scotch
fire-brick. In the additions which have
been made to meet the needs of an ever
increasing number of guests, the spirit of
the original structure has been preserved.
Today it is one of the most famous hostel-
ries on the American continent.
The sight of lower town from the boardwalk will impel you to explore it at closer
quarters. Here the French influence is
supreme. You will see it in the architecture of the high roofed houses and churches,
in the names flourishing above the shops—
in everything in fact that strikes the eye.
You will walk along Little Champlain
street with its breakneck stairs and Sous
le Cap with its clothes-lines and wooden
bridges strung from one house to the
other—reputedly the narrowest street on
the continent. For a few moments you
will pause in that historic old church—
Notre-Dame des Victoires.
A City of Churches
Quebec as one would expect is a city of
churches. Their spires rise on every hand.
The Basilica which was burned down some
years ago has been all but reconstructed
and it is there that the Cardinal officiates.
But the religious life of Quebec is not
confined within the walls of any church.
There are convents and seminaries for
instruction, and hospices and hospitals
where the sick and needy are sheltered.
The ramifications of the Church in Quebec
are infinite.
Have you ever driven in a caleche? This
is a new experience which awaits you.
These high, two-wheeled, horse drawn
vehicles which stand outside the Chateau
are caleches and their drivers are bilingual
encyclopaedias on Quebec and Quebec life.
Entertaining fellows you will find them
and very anxious to please. Under the
aegis of one of these old worthies you can
drive about the city, see the Parliament
buildings or venture further afield to
Spencer Wood, the residence of the
Lieutenant Governor of the Province.
Another delightful excursion is to Montmorency Falls with the Kent House close
by.    There you  may indulge in a quiet
1*1 QUEBEC DISTRICT and the
round of golf, then have tea on the
veranda to the sound of the falling waters.
Then there is Quebec Bridge to be seen—
the largest single span in the world.
Ste. Anne de Beaupre
One of the most picturesque drives,
however, is to the world famous shrine of
Ste. Anne de Beaupre—a shrine of healing
which attracts the faithful by thousands
from all parts of the continent. Past
quaint old villages, with farm houses
reminiscent of Normandy, you pass and
then to the shrine which centuries ago
Breton sailors dedicated to the Mother of
the Blessed Virgin (so tradition says) for
their delivery from shipwreck. In the
olden days the Indians used to come to
pay their homage to the Saint but
nowadays the scene has vastly changed.
Up the steps of the Scala Sancta the
crippled from all parts of the continent
ascend on their knees, trusting in the good
Ste. Anne for delivery from their infirmities.
Another delightful trip is to the Island
of Orleans with its old convents, churches,
seigneurial mills and the life of the habitant
as it has been lived for centuries. Each
year artists from far and near essay to
translate into color the simple beauty of
the island.    But to emphasise particular
spots is perhaps unfair. The whole
countryside is a thing of beauty, redolent
of peace and simplicity. And always at
the end of the day there is the gracious
hospitality of the Chateau—that quiet,
unassuming aristocrat of hostelries.
THE ST. MAURICE VALLEY
Trois-Rivieres (or "Three Rivers," to
give it the equivalent which is sometimes
used) is situated on the north shore of the
St. Lawrence River at the triple mouth of
the St. Maurice River, between Montreal
and Quebec. It is the gateway to a vast
territory full of forest and mineral wealth,
the centre of a rich agricultural and
dairying district, and an important commercial and manufacturing centre. The
second oldest city in Canada (having been
founded in 1634), it is a charming residential city that has many attractions for
the traveller.
Grand'Mere
From Trois-Rivieres a branch line runs
north to Shawinigan Falls and Grand'Mere,
on the western bank of the St. Maurice.
Practically all the watershed of this great
river is heavily forested and dotted with
countless lakes. Shawinigan Falls, at the
town  of the  same  name,   21   miles from
Iff] 1STERN TOW
Trois-Rivieres, are 150 feet high, and have
been harnessed to furnish an enormous
amount of electrical energy to Montreal
and other municipalities. Both Shawinigan
Falls and Grand'Mere, six miles farther
on, have large, modern pulp and paper-
making establishments. An interesting
landmark at Grand'Mere is "Grandmother Rock," in the park that was
originally part of the island on which the
new power plant of 160,000 H.P. is built.
The whole region is one well adapted
to summer resort purposes. The river
with its scenic beauty, the high hills
beyond a well-populated farming country
and the hospitable atmosphere that is
typically French-Canadian, are attractions
of unusual appeal. Shawinigan Falls and
Grand'Mere are "going in" points for
excellent fish and game districts. Both
have good hotels.
Grandes Piles
Two miles east of Trois-Rivieres is Piles
Junction, from which another branch of
the railway runs north—this time on the
eastern shore of the St. Maurice—to
Grandes Piles. The whole territory
drained by the St. Maurice is a remarkably
attractive field for the sportsman. At
Grandes Piles, canoes, guides and equipment can be obtain d for trips into the
surrounding country by arrangement in
advance with Mr. Jean J. Crete or H.
Marchand,   who are thoroughly   familiar
with the requirements of sportsmen and
know just where the best sport is to be had.
The various streams flowing into the
St. Maurice on the eastern side, with their
tributary lakes, are well stocked with fish,
especially the gamy speckled trout,
offering fine sport for the angler. Moose
are plentiful, and deer are also found
throughout the district, with an occasional
black bear. A very interesting and
beautiful trip may be made by launch or
canoe, about 75 miles up the St. Maurice
as far as La Tuque, which is another good
base of operations for the sportsman.
LAURENTIDES PARK
North and north-west of the City of
Quebec, stretching away to Lake St. John
and the lower St. Maurice and beyond, is
a vast area of Laurentian mountain and
lake territory constituting one of the finest
fish and game preserves of the continent.
In these water stretches and forest lands,
fish and game propagate rapidly, and from
the Laurentides National Park, in the very
heart of the country, there is a constant
overflow of animal and fish life into all
the surrounding territory.
Good Fishing
The Park encloses the headwaters of
some of the best trout streams in Eastern
Quebec and shelters an abundance of large
and   small   game.     It   has   been   largely
I7J  QUEBEC DISTRICT

Knowlton Golf Course
closed to the general public until recently
but a more liberal policy in opening it up
is now being pursued. Hunting within
the confines of the Park is prohibited by
law—shooting with the camera alone being
permitted—but the necessary permits for
fishing are issued by the Game and Fisheries Branch of the Provincial Government
of Quebec.
A series of comfortable log cabins within
comparatively easy reach of the different
gateway points has been constructed by
the Department. All camps are built
close to good fishing lakes and are in charge
of guardians; guides may be procured if
desired. At certain camps the guardians
furnish meals at a very moderate charge
per day, thus obviating the necessity of
bringing in provisions. The Park, which
has an area of about 3,565 square miles, is
easily reached from Quebec City by motor
over a good road.
South of the Park and within an hour's
motor ride from the Chateau Frontenac,
Quebec, are the pretty lakes of Beauport
and St. Charles, while the railway to Lake
St. John brings the sportsman in a short
day's run to the far-famed haunts of the
ouananiche, or fresh water salmon, one
of the gamiest fish that swims.
LAKE ST. JOHN
Lake St. John, nearly a hundred miles
in circumference, is fed by a number of
large rivers which afford wonderful fishing
and furnish easy water trails for lengthy
canoe trips into a vast unexplored fish and
game territory extending north to Hudson's Bay. The district yields the best
sport to be obtained anywhere for ouananiche (or landlocked salmon), a species of
fish remarkable for its vigor and fighting
qualities. The Ouiatchouan Falls, on the
south side of Lake St. John, rival in beauty
those of Montmorency, and at Pointe
Bleue, a few miles distant, is the Hudson's
Bay Company's post, where most of the
rich furs taken in the far north are disposed
of by the Montagnais Indians, who make
their summer home there.
Mr. J. Leonce Hamel, Chateau Roberval,
Roberval, Que. has an extensive fish and
game preserve where opportunity is
offered for moose, deer and bear and fine
fishing for speckled trout, land-locked
salmon, pike, dore and lake trout. Comfortable log camps have been established
throughout this preserve, where the
sportsman can be well taken care of.
Chicoutimi, the north-eastern rail terminus and the head of navigation on
the Saguenay River, is another good
centre   for   hunting   and   fishing.

I
Knowlton Landing—Lake Memphremagog
THE EASTERN TOWNSHIPS
Geographically speaking, the Eastern
Townships of Quebec comprise that
district between the St. Lawrence River
and the United States as far east as the
counties bordering on the St. Francis
River. Historically, they are those townships settled by the United Empire Loyalists who came from the United States after
the rebellion of 1776, their sympathies
having been with the defeated British
army. In the Townships are found old
English names for street and village, and,
in the earliest graveyards, English tombs—
a surprising fact in Quebec, which was
mostly  pioneered  by  the  French.
St. Johns
This district is reached by a short railway journey south from Montreal over
the Richelieu River—rich in tradition of
New France, for it was once the sole means
of communication between Montreal and
the French settlement on Lake George
and Lake Champlain. Fort Lennox, the
old forts at St. Johns, Chambly and Fort
Montgomery recall those wars when the
English in New England and the French
in New France were fighting for possession   of  these  fertile   fields.
St. Johns, less than an hour's ride from
Montreal,   has   an   enviable   position on
the Richelieu River, and has long been
popular as a summer home for residents
of Montreal. Among its attractions are
a 9-hole golf course, a polo field, a military
school and a yacht club.
Brome Lake
Soon after passing St. Johns and Iber-x
ville, the train reaches Foster, where
two branches leave the main line of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, one north to
Waterloo, the other south to Brome Lake.
Brome Lake is a beautiful sheet of water
set between low hills. On its shores an
excellent motor road leads for miles, past
lovely country set behind well-kept lawns
and English gardens, the natural rolling
character of the land providing an artistic
setting for hedge and shrub.
The train stops at Knowlton, a lovely
little village at one end of the lake. For
those desiring summer cottages, Knowlton
and in fact the entire Eastern Townships
offer special advantages of rural communities well established. To Knowlton
the summer vacationist comes year after
year, finding peace in its quiet loveliness
of hill and meadow, and with the distinction of a social life at excellent golf and
boating clubs. The undulating hills
around Brome Lake are the foothills of
the Green Mountains, and south it is
only  five   miles  over  a  charming  bit  of
in\ QUEBEC DISTRICT and the
road lined with magnificent maple trees
through Bolton's Pass, into the lofty
wooded hills of the Green Mountains.
Two miles from Knowlton, in a beautiful pine grove, the Knowlton Conference
Association operates a large summer
camp, combining recreation with religious
instruction under organized supervision.
In Knowlton there is a historical museum
which every visitor should see. It includes interesting relics of pioneering
days, and a splendid collection of mementos of the Great War. This museum
was founded in 1897.
Lake Memphremagog
Continuing east from Foster we pass
Orford Lake, at the foot of Orford Mountain—a strange bewildering mass that
raises its 2860 feet of rock and forest
above the rolling hills like some alien giant
among pygmies. Shortly after passing
Orford, Lake Memphremagog glitters into
view. This is a magnificent sheet of water,
30 miles long, an international landmark,
for the little town of Magog lies at the
upper end of it in Canada, and Newport
at the lower end is in the State of Vermont. Two rivers, the Cherry and the
St. Francis, flow through Magog, and the
village streets climb and fall over their
banks in delightful variation.    The town
has many hotels and boarding houses for
the visitor's accommodation, while St.
Mary's Point has been set aside and electric lights installed for the use of picnickers and campers.
Lake Memphremagog, with its seventy-
mile shore-line, presents innumerable
possibilities for canoe and sail, and there
is one delightful trip by steamer which is
always taken more than once by visitors
to Magog. A boat calls at various points
on the lake, the very names of which are
redolent with the spirit of pioneering days,
when the earliest settlers on foot and with
oxen broke trail from across the boundary
and settled on the shores of Memphremagog. Bryant's Landing, Knowlton's
Landing, Perkin's Landing, East Bolton and
Georgeville, with their lovely sunlit bays
and wooded shores, tempt the traveller to
leave the steamer and wander up the
little crooked streets into the neat squares
of  field  and  forest above.
At the lower end of the lake the boat
calls at Newport and, at the extreme
upper end, at the Hermitage, a famous
club situated in a lovely pine grove with
its own 600 acres of land, private golf
links, wooded bridge paths, and tennis
and badminton courts. In Lake Memphremagog there is good fishing, bass,
pickerel, maskinonge and land-locked salmon   being  caught   in  abundance.
I 12] EASTERN TOWNSHIPS
Sherbrooke
Shortly after leaving Magog, the train
arrives at Sherbrooke, the metropolis
of the Eastern Townships. Besides being
its commercial and educational centre,
it is the home of industries of national
importance. In the city the Magog and
St. Francis Rivers unite, and Sherbrooke,
while becoming an industrial centre, has
spread itself along the banks of the two
rivers, retaining the piquancy of streets
curving over bluff and plateau. Here
beautiful homes acquire the added charm
of picturesque situation.
In Sherbrooke, hospitals, schools and
public institutions are built of native red
brick, adding color and brightness to the
city. The famous Sherbrooke Exhibition
is held yearly in the Fair Grounds outside the city, and each year becomes more
the perfect expression of Quebec rural
life. As an industrial centre, Sherbrooke's
greatest asset is the River Magog. Besides lending beauty to the contour of
the city and delightful spots for boating
and bathing, the river provides in its
18 miles of tempestuous length seven
power developments. The citizens have
not neglected to reserve proper parks
within city territory, and Victoria Park,
over 150 acres of beautiful hardwood
forest, offers endless advantages to picnickers. Sherbrooke has also two excellent golf courses, beautifully located overlooking the city, where privileges are
given to the traveller upon payment of
a green fee.
Lake Massawippi
From Sherbrooke, the Quebec Central
Railway runs south to Newport, and
very soon after leaving Sherbrooke reaches
Lake Massawippi. On its shores is the
long-established summer colony of North
Hatley. Lake Massawippi is the loveliest
lake imaginable, shaped very like the
letter S, about nine miles in length and
one mile in width. It provides all facilities for summer enjoyment, and, besides
North Hatley, snuggles on its banks the
summer colony of Ayer's Cliff.
Many distinguished Canadians and
Americans have made Lake Massawippi
their summer homes, and beautiful estates charmingly well-kept add to the
natural beauty of the lake. On the
shores of the lake the landscape appears
to have been conveniently tilted, as if
supported on an easel, and field and
stream, fence and forest, slope gently
down, while cows and sheep graze in this
same up-tilted position. North Hatley
has two golf courses, which from their
position present such natural sporting
hazards as must have delighted the heart
of the golf architect. The hills are ideal
for ski-ing, and winter sport enthusiasts
are making North Hatley as popular
in winter as in summer.
In the vicinity are many deep-shadowed
maple sugar bushes ideal for walking
or horseback riding, while for the fisherman Massawippi holds maskinonge, pike
and black bass.
I 18} EASTERN TOWNSHIPS
Lennoxville
East from Sherbrooke the train passes
Lennoxville, famous for the fact that
Bishop's College is a mile over the hill.
Its buildings, seen so charmingly through
shrub and vine, are set back in the rich
lawns of the college close. A goli; club
gives privileges to travellers upon payment of green fees.
Megantic
East from Lennoxville the train passes
great cedar marshes and long stretches
of forests of young poplar and willow where
the great forests were destroyed by fire
some years ago. At intervals the train
stops at straggling little hamlets owing
their existence to the great lumber camps
and mills fringing the forests. Megantic,
on a beautiful lake of the same name, is
a typical little frontier town. It was first
settled by United Empire Loyalists, and
their descendants still occupy that little
portion of the town across the lake where
great pendant willows dip their boughs
into the water; but the new town is near
the station and the two great saw-mills.
An interesting trip may be taken up Lake
Megantic, touching at Piopolis, Woborn
and Three Lakes. Piopolis is interesting,
having been founded by Pope Pius after
the war in Italy of 1873, and settled by
his soldiers, the Zouaves. At Three Lakes
is Spider Lake, where the club house of
the Megantic Fish and Game Club is
situated. Trout Lake, with its excellent
fishing waters is only ten miles from
Megantic, and the entire district is very
popular with fishermen. In the autumn,
too, when the woods are crimson, deer
and moose are plentiful in the woods
around, where they thrive on the succulent growth of the young forests. Besides hotels and boarding houses, a few
summer cottages on the lake are for rent
each year.
VERMONT
The acquisition by the Canadian Pacific
of. that section of the Boston and Maine
Railroad from Newport to Wells River,
and the inauguration of faster services
between Montreal and Boston over this
route, have provided a delightful route to
the resorts of the beautiful state of Vermont. The lakes, mountains and rivers
of the Green Mountain State from a very
fine combination attractive to the vacationist. Lyndonville, in the valley of the
Passumpic River, is an ideal New England
village with a good hotel. In plain sight
is stately Burke Mountain, one of the
highest peaks of the eastern range of the
Green Mountains, while further to the
north is beautiful Willoughby Lake,
flanked on either side by towering Hor
and Pisgah. Near the village are many
attractive hill and meadow farms, and
good golfing.
