The City of the Foothills
Greatas Calgary may become as an
industrial and commercial city, it will never lose the
romantic charm it holds for Canadians, lying as it does
so close to one of nature's mountain wonderlands.
Calgary sprang from the fertility of Alberta
when the Canadian Pacific laid its lines across the
plains. When the first chain men crossed the Bow
River there was not so much as a shack where majestic
Calgary stands today. And now, young as Calgary is,
she has seen Southern Alberta pass through the era
of the rancher to that of the grain grower and the
mixed farmer. She has seen the gigantic irrigation
developments of the Canadian Pacific turn vast
semi-arid areas into fruitful farming lands. She herself
has grown; first, into a distributing centre and grain
centre for half of Alberta, and later into a manufacturing city with a yearly production of $35,000,000.
Calgary is the largest city of Alberta, and the
largest between Winnipeg and the Pacific Coast.
Occupying a commanding position on the Canadian
Pacific lines radiating to every part of the province,
and the central shipping point on the western grain
route, it is a flourishing industrial, agricultural and
educational city, with fine buildings and many manufacturing establishments.
It is very closely associated with the Canadian
Pacific, for it has the magnificent Hotel Palliser
and the Ogden Shops—the latter a large plant for the
repair of rolling stock. It is the headquarters of
the Company's Department of Natural Resources,
administering all the land, mineral and timber interests in the west, and tributary to the city is the three
million acre irrigation project—the largest individual
scheme of the continent.
