Description

"Sicamous: We are now back at Sicamous, on the main line, where we halted on our across-Canada journey. (See No. 125.) Sicamous is not only the junction point for the Okanagan Valley; it is also a favorite stop-over point for travellers who, having traversed the mountains, wish also to see by daylight the wonderful canyon scenery that lies between here and Vancouver. To accommodate this traffic, the Canadian Pacific has erected a comfortable hotel. Sicamous stands on Lake Shuswap, a large body of water of irregular shape, which affords wonderful trout fishing."

Excerpt from "ACROSS CANADA BY C. P. R.", Section 7--The Pacific Coast; booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, 1928.
