Description

"Vancouver: Vancouver, the Western terminus of the rail lines of the Canadian Pacific, is one of the leading cities of the North Pacific coast. It is a very important seaport, with a vast Oriental business, and the centre of a huge lumbering and fishing trade. It is also coming rapidly to the fore in shipbuilding. (Population including suburbs 255,000.)"
