This guidebook, published by the Daily Telegraph in Quebec City, contains a wealth of valuable information for the resident and tourist alike. Historical overviews, details regarding places of interest, travel schedules and fares, and even Old French songs provide a fascinating perspective of the city at the turn of the century. Advertisements for furriers, hotels, rail lines and temperance drinks provide interesting social context that may be missed in the somewhat dry writing. A previous owner has also penciled several doodles in the blank pages, which adds to the charm.
The map, disbound at the back, shows the location of electric rail lines and has a large profile of the new Daily Telegraph building on the verso.
