Scenic Seas of the North Pacific Coast, a Canadian National Railway brochure painted by A W Bell in the Maritime Museum’s hidden treasures online. It depicts a steamship loading at a pier (preceding the CPR Pier B & C by a few years) in the Burrard Inlet.
This 1923 brochure from Canadian National Railway advertises the popular “Triangle Tour”. The tour began in Vancouver on board one of CN’s Prince ships. The passenger ship traveled north along the coast, and through the scenic Inside Passage, famous for the beautiful fjords, mountainous views, and tranquil waters that were occasionally disturbed by whales or dolphins. At Prince Rupert, tourists were transferred to train and then traveled to Jasper, through the Skeena valley and the Canadian Rockies, with views of the magnificent Mount Robson. After overnighting in Jasper, the train then returned to Vancouver using the more southerly route along the Thompson and Fraser rivers.
