Subseries consists of records related to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's travel and tourism services, advertised as "The World's Greatest Travel System." The C.P.R. operated fleets of trains and steamships as well as luxury hotels and resorts, such as the Empress Hotel in Victoria and the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The records in this subseries reflect the extensive promotion of travel opportunities across Canada and the world. Many of the records in this subseries relate to travel on the company's luxurious ocean liners, which were very popular in the 1920s and 1930s; the C.P.R. offered cruises not only to destinations such as the Caribbean or the Mediterranean, but also four-month-long around-the-world tours that called at 81 ports in 23 countries. The subseries also contains a small number of records related to travel on the Canadian Pacific Air Lines, which by the 1970s had overtaken ocean liners for international travel.
These records include pamphlets, photographs and photo albums, scrapbooks, travel diaries, postcards, newspaper clippings, newsletters, posters and broadsides, maps, steamship track charts, deck plans, menus, programmes, cards listing services and fares, baggage tags, C.P.R. stationery, correspondence, staff reports, rail and ship timetables, itineraries, passenger lists, and memorabilia.
