Canadian Pacific Railway map poster
ca. 1885

This map poster was produced by the Canadian Pacific Railway in the mid-1880s. Like many advertisements from the earlier years of Canada's immigration program, it features a considerable amount of detailed information on immigrating to western Canada. In later posters, the railway concentrated less on substance and more on imagery to attract potential homesteaders.
