Description

This look at the Glacier-Waterton International Peace Park was issued in 1952 by the Great Northern Railway as promotional material for its route, which can be seen along the lower portion of the map servicing the Glacier Park Station.

Park boundaries are noted in yellow, international boundaries in blue, and roads/trails in various shades of red. Locations of interest and tourism destinations are individually labeled, and small illustrations add personality and life to the image.

Although the park is presented as a unified entity, it’s actually an informal union of two independent parks – Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada and Glacier National Park in the United States. Each is administered separately and entrance fees are charged independently.

On the verso are advertisements for the region and the Great Northern Route, including photographs, inset maps, and tour suggestions.
