Description

"Calgary -- Palliser Hotel: The most imposing building in Calgary is the Palliser Hotel, operated by the Canadian Pacific. This handsome structure comprises ten floors. It is built in "E" shape, thereby making every room an outside room. From the roof garden one can obtain a beautiful view of the Rockies, over 50 miles away."

Excerpt from "ACROSS CANADA BY C. P. R.", Section 4--The Prairie Provinces; booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, 1928.
