Three hundred vintage advertising and promotional posters. During
the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company (CPR) was widely hailed as "The
World's Greatest Travel System." The Canadian Pacific
transcontinental railroad spanned North America from the Atlantic
to Pacific oceans. The company also operated luxury hotels and
resorts, passenger ocean liners, cargo ships, and an airline.
To promote the company and Canada to the world, Canadian Pacific
produced more than 2,500 stunning lithographic and silkscreen
posters -- 1,000 of which were created in its own graphic
Posters of the Canadian Pacific is a treasury of three hundred of
the finest posters published by the company. They were displayed in
Canadian Pacific offices and independent travel agencies worldwide
from the 1880s until the 1970s. These posters enticed millions to
visit and even settle in Canada.
The posters span the years 1883-1973 with special focus on the Art
Deco style posters of the 1920s and '30s. They focus on travel and
leisure -- activities on ski slopes, golf courses, beaches, and
luxury resorts. Other posters feature Canadian Pacific ocean liners
in exotic locations around the globe such as the West Indies, Rio,
Hawaii and the Orient.
Posters of the Canadian Pacific will appeal to a wide audience
including art lovers, history buffs and railroad enthusiasts.
