# There is a special reason why you should travel to
Canada's Evergreen Playground through Canada's
Mountain Playground, the Canadian Rockies, during
the Summer of 1936. From July 1 to September 7,
Vancouver, Canada's third city and largest Canadian
city on the Pacific Coast, will celebrate its semicentennial.
Just fifty years ago a sleepy little lumbering
centre, Vancouver leaped to international greatness
when the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1886 carried
its Pacific terminus to within sixteen miles of the
present city and a year later extended its lines to the
city proper, making Vancouver one of the transportation centres of the world. Now a city of 350,000
souls, a great transportation, wholesale distributing
and manufacturing centre, Vancouver holds the keys
to the Yukon, and to the vast British Columbia coast,
with its fishing, lumbering and mining. To the north
and east of Vancouver stretch mountains which yield
their wealth in gold, silver, copper, zinc and a dozen
other metals.
Born partly of the Gold Rush and its attendant
northward sweep, Vancouver's greatest advance has
been in the direction of shipping, and for several
years past the deep-sea tonnage handled through her
up-to-date all-year port has eclipsed all other ports
between Mexico and Alaska.
Vancouver's Golden Jubilee, to be celebrated
during the Summer of 1936, will be a memorable
milestone in the history of the city.
On July 3, there will be a re-enactment at Port
Moody (sixteen miles up Burrard Inlet) of the arrival
of the first Canadian transcontinental passenger
train which was operated via Canadian Pacific and
reached Port Moody on July 4,1886. This first transcontinental train united the Canadian provinces and
fulfilled the stipulation of the Confederation pact.
On July 4, the citizens of Vancouver are planning
an Independence Day celebration in honor of their
United States visitors.
For the rest, big things are planned for Vancouver.
They include a west-east trans-Canada air race;
a $5,000 open golf tournament, and the Canada
Pacific Exhibition from August   26 to September 7,
^      1936
as highlights of a bright, sparkling programme. Throughout the
Summer, visitors will find the city
in a state of carnival and fun. Pag-
entry will include re-enactment of
the colorful Gold Rush days; the
discovery voyages of Capt. Cook,
Capt. George Vancouver, and the
early Spaniards who visited the
Pacific Coast in their high-backed
galleons. Stanley Park, Vancouver's
remarkable playground, where
thousand-year-old firs and cedars
raise stately heads, will be the focal
point for a steady round of sport
and cultural entertainment—tennis tournaments, cricket matches,
rugby games, lawn bowling tournaments, symphonies and operatic
concerts in the Malkin Memorial
Bowl, and colorful performances of
Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's
Dream with a cast of several hundred performers.
This is the year to see Canada's
Evergreen Playground—when Vancouver is at her hospitable and
entertaining best.
From Vancouver, too, are easily
reached Victoria and Vancouver
Island,sportsmen's paradises. Short
sea trips to Alaska or to the West
Coast of Vancouver Island also
offer a fitting climax to your
trip through the Canadian Rockies.

# Headquarters of a sportsman's empire known
as the lower mainland of British Columbia,
Vancouver, largest city of Canada's Pacific
Coast province, extends a ready welcome to the
visitor and stands prepared at all times to
share its beauties and unique recreational
facilities with the traveller.
Surrounded by tall peaks, Vancouver's
harbor, snug haven for shipping, extends for
sixteen miles and is large enough to hold all
the ships of every navy. Through the Narrows,
or Lion's Gate, ships enter from all corners of
the seas, for Vancouver, in its brief half-century
existence, has become one of the world's great
ports. A city of parks and beaches, Vancouver's
recreational life centres around Stanley
Park, guarded by centuries-old monarchs
of the forest. There, in an unspoiled paradise,
are Second Beach, the Malkin Memorial Bowl
for outdoor concerts, the Harding Memorial
commemorating international amity between
the United States and Canada, the zoological
gardens, the rustic pavilion, tennis courts,
bowling greens, cricket pitches, rugby fields,
baseball diamonds, a miniature golf course,
and children's playgrounds generously
equipped by service clubs.
Nearby is English Bay, most popular of
the city's many beaches, and beyond is
Kitsilano Beach with its new concrete pool.
Here   begins   a   string   of   beaches,   Jericho,
Locarno   and   Spanish   Banks,   extending  for
seven miles to the bluffs of Point Grey.
Over on the North Shore are further treats
for the eye: Capilano Canyon, worshipped by
the Indians, and spanned by the world's highest suspension bridge; the Indian village at
North Vancouver with its historic church;
Lynn Valley, Grouse Mountain, Hollyburn
Ridge, Gleneagles and innumerable summer
camps carved from the mountainside in deep
sheltered bays. Golf courses abound, every
conceivable sport has its devoted following,
and children romp in a hundred
fine parks.
Beauty Spots abound in Stanley Park
• For a two-and-a-half-hour cruise from Vancouver,
Nanaimo and its adjacent resort, Newcastle Island, offer
special attractions. On Newcastle Island are swimming,
boating, fishing, hiking and dancing in the big pavilion.
One of the newer resorts, Newcastle boasts a floating hotel
—a Princess ship berthed at the dock provides a novel
means of accommodation with a wide appeal.
Vancouver is also the gateway to a score of beauty spots
within easy reach by rail or road.

Harrison Hot Springs Hotel
# Harrison Hot Springs, the Canadian Spa, with its hotel,
attractive golf course, well laid-out tennis courts, boating
and fishing on a beautiful stretch of water, is reached from
Agassiz, a two-hour run from Vancouver on the Canadian
Pacific's main line. The two mineral springs (sulphur and
potash respectively), modern bath establishment under
medical supervision, and recreational attractions, make
this a popular vacation and health centre. ([Owned and operated by the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel Company Limited.1
# Canadian Pacific Princess liners maintain a convenient
service to Ocean Falls, Prince Rupert, Nanaimo, Campbell
River (favorite haunt of the fighting tyee), Powell River
and a score of other readily accessible places to reach
which means a delightful sea journey of varying length.

#"Like a transplanted corner of England!" visitors to
Victoria, picturesque capital of British Columbia, have
been wont to exclaim, and certainly the Old World touch
i not lacking in that well-favored spot. Policemen, or
rather, "bobbies", in tall helmets; broad streets whose
buildings are by no means skyscrapers; the cultured
voices overheard in hotel lobby or shop; the gardens with
clipped yew hedges and graceful formality, and the
Empress Hotel itself, set in spacious gardens and
constructed architecturally after the style of an English
manor, certainly create the impression that this indeed
is a breath of the Old Land. The sea breezes
and moderate temperatures make for a mild but bracing
A shopper's paradise, Victoria's old book stores,
antique shops featuring English chinaware, silver and
glass, and stores with linens, woollens and knitted wear,
are great tourist attractions. But there is much more
to Victoria than an English atmosphere and pleasant
First, there is the Empress Hotel, overlooking the
ships that come and go in the inner harbor and the
broad expanse of the Parliament Buildings. The Empress,

gardens and bright with ivy, has 570 guest rooms
in addition to spacious lounges, a conservatory,
ballroom, tennis courts and putting green. Rates,
too, are reasonable.
Within easy reach of the hotel and reached by
means of a beautiful drive through the city's
best residential areas, are the famous gardens
of Mr. and Mrs. R. P. Butchart, open to the
public through the owners' generosity. There, in
an old disused quarry, genius has created one of
the most remarkable of gardens, in fact a whole
series of gardens: English, Japanese and Italian,
with an aviary and duck ponds added for good
measure. Near the Empress Hotel, too, is the
Crystal Garden, the largest indoor warm salt water
bathing pool on the Pacific Coast, restful in cool
greens, and encased in glass. Turkish and electro-
therapeutic baths, also Swedish massage, are
available here after a dip in the warm sea water.
There is also a very interesting Provincial
Museum in Victoria, rich in Pacific Coast Indian
Parliament Buildings, as seen from Empress Hotel ©DE cou
# A sportsman's paradise, Victoria and its
environs offer year-round golf—the Empress Winter
Golf Tournament is held every February to emphasize
this fact. Its numerous fine courses include the seagirt Oak Bay course, Royal Colwood with its gnarled
scrub oaks and tall firs, the Uplands where meadow-larks
greet the newborn day, McAulay Point, and the new and
popular Gorge Vale course. Guests at the Empress Hotel
are automatically guest members of the Oak Bay and
Royal Colwood clubs on payment of green fees.
Vancouver Island is known as the haunt of fighting
trout and salmon, as well as big game, and fishing is one
of the main tourist attractions. While Campbell River,
haunt of the giant tyee, is considerably farther north,
there is plenty of good fishing within easy reach of
Victoria—notably at Brentwood Bay, near Butchart's
Gardens, where the boatmen operate on the promising
"no fish, no pay" basis. Other attractive resorts on Vancouver Island include Qualicum Beach and Sproat Lake.
Motoring, yachting and riding are also popular
diversions in Victoria.
Crystal Garden
 West Coast^ Vancouver Island
©Vancouver Island, with an area greater than the British Isles, lies at the west
side of the British Columbia mainland, fending the sea from the mainland for
three hundred miles. On the seaward, or west coast of Vancouver Island, out
\> here the broad Pacific has its full sweep, little bands of fishermen, lumbermen
and miners go their ways courageously in pursuit of a livelihood. Along the
whole rugged coast are dotted fishing villages, tiny lumber mills, fish canneries
and fish reduction plants where the teeming pilchards give their oil to industry
and the pink flesh of salmon is pressed into airtight containers. Here, unbeknown
to the world at large, is the oldest, historically speaking, part of the whole Pacific
Northwest region. There came Capt. Cook in the late 18th century to dicker with
the doughty Alberni and Quadra, and there, at Nootka, was signed the treaty
giving Great Britain, and not Spain, title to the northwest Pacific possessions.
Along this coast, last outpost of a sea-borne empire, communications between
the tiny villages and larger towns is maintained chiefly by the Princess Norah and
Princess Maquinna, of the Canadian Pacific's British Columbia Coast fleet. From
Victoria, thrice monthly in summer, these ships make regular trips to all of the
scattered ports, a tour lively with "local color" and scenic interest. Indian
villages with bright totem poles, lend charm to the tour of the west coast of
Vancouver Island, which has become increasingly popular in recent years. The
trip takes six and a half days.
Metropolitan Seattle
# Linking three cities—each different and with a charm
of its own—the speedy Canadian Pacific sister-ships
Princess Marguerite and Princess Kathleen (21-knot
Canadian Pacific coastal liners that are miniatures of
the modern deep-sea leviathans), perform the famous
"Triangle" service between Vancouver, Victoria and
Seattle. Leaving Vancouver each morning for Seattle
by way of Victoria, the ship plows along the island-
dotted Gulf of Georgia, through the bottle-neck passage
of Active Pass and reaches Victoria in mid-afternoon,
remaining in the picturesque British Columbia capital
for two hours, thereby giving travellers a chance to see
the Empress Hotel, Crystal Garden, Dominion astro-
physical and meteorological observatories, Butchart's
Gardens, and other sights for which the Vancouver
Island city is justly famous. The sail from Victoria to
Seattle is equally pleasant, with arrival at Seattle the
same night.
Seattle, smart, metropolitan, and with a ready welcome for the stranger—a frontier spirit which is perhaps
reminiscent of the days of '98 when it was the jumping-
off place for northbound Argonauts—is the southern
terminus of the Canadian Pacific "Triangle" service.
The smart shops, modern hotels, Bremerton Navy yard,
University of Washington and other points of interest
make a visit to Seattle worthwhile. From Seattle, a
speedy Princess liner departs each morning for Victoria
and Vancouver, carrying a few hundred more tourists
bound for British Columbia and the Canadian Rockies

of the Midnight Sun, for there, much
as it was a thousand years ago, is one
of the world's last frontiers!
Aside from its historical background
■—who has not heard of the Gold Rush
of '98—Alaska itself, and the Yukon
beyond, have rare beauty in their own
right. Deep, heavily-wooded fjords,
soaring mountains, colorful Indians and
tribal totem poles, landmarks of the
great Gold Rush, Skagway, and other
bustling northern outposts, are abrim
still with pioneer enthusiasm. You will
want to go to Alaska by the famous
Inside Passage, where no Pacific swells
can penetrate. The route is a succession
of wooded islets, deep bays, the humping
of a whale, the bark of a sea lion, or the
passing bustle of a nearby cannery or
paper mill to break the sylvan spell.
Up through this scenic Inside Passage,
skirting vast Taku Glacier, imperishable wall of ice, ply Canadian Pacific
Princess liners, maintaining a year-
round service from Vancouver (convenient connections from Victoria and
Seattle) with extra sailings during the
summer months.

• A mile-high roof-garden in the Rockies,
Banff is probably the most famous of all
resorts in the Canadian Rockies. Here, at
the rushing confluence of the Bow and Spray
rivers, stands one of the world's most
magnificent hotels—Banff Springs Hotel.
In architecture like a great Scottish baronial
castle, it is of stone and brick construction,
fully modern and fireproof. Luxurious in
its public rooms, suites and guest rooms,
the hotel boasts a high standard of service,
and numbers among its entertainment
features: swimming in sulphur and fresh
water pools, tennis, horseback riding, and
golf on its own beautiful 6,640-yard, par-71
course. The golf course, considered one of
the world's best, is in a particularly scenic
setting, with wide fairways and beautiful
big greens. Alpine climbing, fishing and
hiking are other featured diversions. The
hotel offers musical programs, dancing
and special entertainments as added
attractions. The Stoney Indians hold a colorful parade and celebration each year: "Indian
Day" at Banff this year will be celebrated
July 24-26.
View from Emerald Lake Chalet
• On foot, by rail, on horseback or in a speedy motor car your trip
through the Canadian Rockies always is a memorable one. Here in
the roof-garden of the world, amid surroundings of breath-taking
beauty, is your heart's desire in sport and zestful recreation.
To make your visit the utmost in comfort, the Canadian Pacific,
in addition to Banff Springs Hotel, Chateau Lake Louise and Emerald
Lake Chalet, maintains a chain of chalet-bungalow camps where cosy
comfort, and rustic informality are the keynotes.
From these rustic havens stretch out in all directions the wooded
or glacier-guarded trails leading to Alpine peaks, and good trout fishing
• Chalet-Bungalow Camps consist of one large clubhouse, surrounded
by modern bungalows with comfortable beds, electric lights, stoves
and other conveniences. They are situated at Moraine Lake in the
Valley of the Ten Peaks, not far from Lake Louise; at Lake Wapta.
5,219 feet above sea level; Yoho Valley, facing Takakkaw Falls; Radium
Hot Springs, overlooking Sinclair Canyon, and Lake O'Hara, beloved
of artists, which is accessible only on foot or by pony. Each camp is
strategically located in the midst of good fishing, with every facility
and inducement for horseback riding, trail riding and hiking. All of
the  chalet-bungalow  camps  are operated on the American Plan at

• No more zestful sport exists than riding the trails of the Canadian
Rockies. It matters not what trail you choose, either, for all lead to
some worthwhile vista of snow-clad peaks or emerald lakes. Saddle-
horses, hill-wise and sure-footed, are for hire at all Canadian Pacific
hotels and chalet-bungalow camps and are available for short or lengthy
excursions into the surrounding country. Even those unaccustomed to
riding will find themselves at home astride a mountain cayuse, for
though their gait is not that of a pacer it is sure and steady. An order
called the "Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies" holds an official
riding and camping trip each summer.
the heights. From the many - windowed lounges, dining rooms and
ballroom, guests at Chateau Lake Louise may sit and gaze at this
eternal but ever-changing panorama. Then, from contemplation of
Nature's most generous moods, the visitor may turn to swimming in the
sparkling glass-enclosed pool, to dancing, boating, tennis, riding or
exploration of the many fascinating trails within easy distance of the
hotel. Good motor roads and trails also lead to other "high spots" in
the Canadian Rockies, including Moraine Lake, Valley of the Ten Peaks,
Yoho Valley, Takakkaw Falls, and Emerald Lake Chalet. A pony trail
commanding magnificent Alpine panoramas leads to Lake O'Hara
Chalet-Bungalow Camp.
hinq mme -ROCKIES
• Devotees of the flying runners from all
parts of the world proclaim snow and
topographical conditions of the Canadian
Rockies the finest in the world. This
explains why winter after winter increasing armies of ski-wise sportsmen
are coming to enjoy the unique thrills of
a run at Mount Assiniboine and Mount
Norquay near Banff, or Skoki and
Sunshine ski camps near Lake Louise.
Hard, speedy snow, hills free of timber
and other obstructions, account for the
fine ski terrain of the Canadian Rockies.
Within reach of comfortable hotel or
camp accommodation is a likely ski spot,
though experts recommend Assiniboine,
Sunshine, Skoki and Norquay camps
which possess every facility, including
shelter, guides and instructors. A winter
carnival at Banff is generally held in
February. Although Canadian Pacific resort-hotels and chalet-bungalow camps
are not open during the winter months,
other accommodation is available.
Ready for the Banff Winter Carnival
• For those who prefer foot travel, trail hiking in the Canadian Rockies
has its own rewards. It is a delightful way to reach the highest peaks,
and the exercise is one of the finest. Guides are available wherever
needed but most of the trails are well marked and can be followed with
safety even by the tenderfoot. To encourage the more extensive use
