A.C. Leighton was commissioned by the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in 1924, 1927 and 1929 to travel across Canada and create images used to promote tourism. Unfortunatly the vast majority of original work that A.C. created for the CPR during this time was destroyed during the London Bombing Blitz of World War II. The LAC Collection contains several examples of posters, brochures, advertisments, and booklettes designed by A.C. for CPR between 1924 - 1930.
