Happy New Year! We made it to 2017 and I just have this wonderful feeling that its going to be an awesome year. One of the cool things happening in Canada this year, is our 150th Birthday, yes Canada is turning the big 1-5-0 and she is still looking good (even better if I may say). I’m excited this year to get out and explore more of my beloved country and share my adventures with all of you. So stay tuned!
For today’s post we will be exploring beautiful Vintage Canadian Travel Posters & Advertising.
Join us in British Columbia.
The water is nice at Chateau Lake Louise, Alberta ( BTW Friends: I will be doing a ‘Vintage Travel to do list post on this hotel next week).
The Mountie and the Rockies, iconic Canadian symbols.
Saskatoon, is the largest city in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. There was also a song written about it in 1915, as seen in the sheet music image below.
Here is what the song sounded like. So very Ragtime!
Cruise the Great Lakes of Ontario.
You MUST go to Niagara Falls when you visit, it’s breathtaking!
The poster is correct, Quebec is truly a Winter Wonderland.
My dad attended Expo 67 in Montreal.
Head to the East Coast to discover a truly charming part of Canada.
Known world-wide for the beloved and spunky character, Anne of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island will truly delight.
‘Canada’s Happy Province’. This slogan from a 1965 ad for Newfoundland and Labrador made me giggle. I guess the rest of Canada’s provinces are grumpy and unwelcoming?
Canada also has 3 Territories: Yukon, Northwest Territory and Nunavut.
