In the earliest days of Canadian railways, the arrival of a rail line initiated a town’s integration with the greater economy. No longer was travel between communities dusty, belabored, and slow. Remote regions finally became accessible. Tourism grew, and destinations formed alongside the railroads. In the mid-1920s two companies came to dominate transcontinental rail travel: Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways. They were intent on attracting tourists, and while their posters often featured modern locomotives speeding down the tracks, they just as often advertised Canada itself—its wild vistas, its villages, and a quiet way of life. Here are 30 fine examples.
