Canadian Pacific streamliner Canadian, predecessor of VIA’s Canadian: photos from 1950s ads

The reproductions above and below are from small photos in National Geographic ads. The quality leaves much to be desired, but nonetheless they give a wonderful feel of the interior of the train. I also have a brochure CP produced to promote the Canadian and will later post it. The brochure uses drawings, rather washed-out color-wise, and doesn’t capture the interiors as well.
