"Summer days in the Laurentians: Montrealers are fortunate in that they have, almost at their very door, an exceptionally fine holiday region -- the Laurentian Mountains.A short train ride north to St. Jerome, and from there on, rising gradually to a height of over 1,300 feet and descending again, the journey is for over a hundred miles through an enchanting district of mountain, lake, stream and wood. Thousands of visitors every year throng the numerous resorts which have arisen, of which the chief are Ste. Agathe, Val Morin, St. Faustin, St. Jovite. Mont Tremblant, etc. -- places whose very names are delicious and which offer every kind of amusement that simple or cultivated tastes calls for. This picture shows a girls' camp near Ste. Marguerite."
