CANADIAN RAIL TRAVEL FROM MONTREAL TO VANCOUVER

Item #140

There are over 250 photographs in this exciting 1920s 7" x 11" photo album, from a deft eye capturing landscapes and notable places speeding by from a train ride across the interior of Canada. The album begins with a race between two railroad companies, Canadian Pacific Railway and Canadian National Railway, from east to west, ending in the Canadian Rockies. Some photos are obviously taken from a moving train, while others are at stops along the way. Several are annotated in a graceful hand, including:

10 mile race between CPR and CNR at 70 mph

Farming country – Eastern Ontario – Montreal to Toronto

Forests in Eastern Ontario during snowstorm

Armstrong to Minarki

Sudbury to Longlac, Ontario

Dog team, Portage Ave, Winnepeg

Saskatoon

Edmonton

Jasper Park

Indian Totem Poles

Yellowhead Pass

Mt. Robson

Hell’s Gate, Thompson River

Vancouver

New Westminster Bridge

Stanley Park

Thompson Canyon

The photos present a stunning and unique view of the Canadian interior at the time, from breathtaking wilderness, mountainous forests and rushing icy falls, to city buildings and streets and the powerful speed machines winding along the narrow corridors through these landscapes. Photos measure 2.625" x 4.625" and are pasted to 45 double-sided pages. Photos show some light fading, ,otherwise the album is complete and in good condition.
