"Saskatoon: Saskatoon, on the South Saskatchewan River, is a little more than half-way between Winnipeg and Edmonton on the important branch line of the Canadian Pacific that connects those three cities. It is situated in the heart of a very rich agricultural district, for which it is the supply centre. Its growth has been very rapid, condensing into a shorter span of years than is even usually the case the characteristic development of the Western city. Less than twenty years ago Saskatoon was a tent settlement of a few score people; now it is a busy little metropolis of some 31,000.This is a view of the University of Saskatoon. In the foreground is seen the new Chemistry building with the Physics building to the right."
