Introduction

"Across Canada" by the CPR was the first of McGill's illustrated lecture series, and undoubtedly one of the most popular. To promote luxury tourism, encourage immigration and entertain its employees, the rail company offered short and full versions of a 3,500 miles tour across Canada, from Halifax to Victoria.

The 1928 version of this lecture comprises no less than 150 glass slides for the full tour and 85 for the short one.
