Jasper Park Lodge on Lac Beauvert

This 1924 booklet is about half text and half illustrations. Most of the spreads have several black-and-white photos and the centerfold has a colorful, but busy, oblique aerial view of the park. The cover curiously unfolds to be only about 13.5-inches wide even though the pages open up to more than 17 inches.

The booklet also notes that CN aspired to use the latest technology, having “already equipped some of its through trains with radio receiving apparatus and is going ahead on a definite program which embraces the building of broadcasting stations.” CN was “broadcasting weekly from eight different broadcasting stations” from Montreal to Edmonton, with plans to extend this to Moncton in the east and Vancouver in the west. Broadcasts included “concerts, . . . market reports, weather bulletins, etc.”
