Description

"At Sea -- Great Lakes: These steamers are Clyde-built, offering luxurious accomodation for three hundred passengers. Plenty of breezes, beautiful scenery and a comfortable ship-life make this two-day trip one to be cherished in the memory. We come out from Georgian Bay, cross Lake Huron, and the next day reach Sault Ste. Marie."

Excerpt from "ACROSS CANADA BY C. P. R.", Section 3--The Province of Ontario; booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, 1928.
