"Lake Superior -- North Shore: If we prefer the rail journey, after leaving Sudbury we travel for several hours through a vast forested region and then emerge upon the shores of Lake Superior. This wonderful lake is seen from the train, and the rocky shore and deep cuttings through which the line runs give the traveller a very impressive idea of the difficulties which the builders of the railway encountered and conquered. The rock through which we tunnel, as seen in the promontory in this picture, is said to be the oldest rock known to geologists."
