February 16, 2001:
Canadian Pacific commemorates its 120th anniversary by launching a website devoted to displaying images of the history of the company drawn from the CPR Archives. The site at www.cprheritage.com displays hundreds of photographs and graphic art from one of the largest privately-owned archival collections in Canada. Images from the CP archives have also appeared in several books, most notably J.F. Garden's "Nicholas Morant's Canadian Pacific" in 1991. In 2006, the CPR published "Portraits of Canada: Photographic Treasures of the CPR."
The images shown here are from the CPR archives and they and many others can be found on CP's fine reference site.
