Our Railway to the Pacific

E J Hart, The Selling of Canada, Altitude Publishing, 1986

The former Governor-General of Canada, John Campbell- better known by his title, the Marquis of Lorne, wrote an article about the new transcontinental railway for the British journal "Good Words". 
In 1886 the Canadian Pacific Railway reprinted this article, with illustrations by the Marquis's wife, Princess Louise as their first tourist promotional pamphlet.
