Western Canada by Canadian Pacific

While Canadian Pacific’s 1953 Rocky Mountain booklet covered the territory from Calgary to Hope, BC (with a page for Vancouver and Victoria), this one nominally goes from Winnipeg to Victoria. Yet all of Manitoba and Saskatchewan are covered in just one page, while Banff to Field get 10 pages.

The booklet also has a page on CP’s southern route through Crow’s Nest Pass, plus a page each on Vancouver and Victoria. While it is mostly an overlap with the Rocky Mountain booklets, it probably served a market consisting of those few who found the prairie provinces as interesting as the mountains.
