Interesting Facts for Your Next Convention

This brochure encourages people to hold conventions at one of Canadian Pacific’s hotels in the Rockies or Vancouver, BC. There’s no date, but it mentions the Trans-Canada Limited, which operated from 1919 to 1931. It also has a photo of a Vancouver memorial to President Warren Harding, who spoke in Vancouver shortly before he died. The memorial was dedicated in late 1925, so this brochure must be from somewhere between 1926 and 1931.

Although the brochure has some pretty pictures, it does a poor job of making a pitch for holding a convention thousands of miles away from the eastern cities where most Canadians lived. The brochure says nothing about the convention facilities available at CP hotels and very little about what people could expect from their visits. Curiously, one entire panel is blank; possibly, it was to be used by individual hotels to answer some of these questions.
