National Geographic : 1940 Apr
DRIVE the River Road to Quebec, North bank or South ... below you, great liners, wearing their dull grey war paint, steam slowly towards the sea, laden with supplies for embattled Europe from the mills of men . . . yet here, all is peace in the land where Old World and New meet and are one. At the roadside, French Canadian farmwives dis play their hand-made hooked rugs in a gay kaleido scope of colour ... on their verandahs stand the family spinning-wheels . . . hard by the farmstead may be seen the stone bake-ovens whence comes the Staff of Life of rural Quebec. Spires in the distance .. , a run through a modern suburb . . . then through a gate in the Old Wall and through narrow, Old-World streets to the ram parts of Canada's ancient Capital... Quebec City. To-morrow you'll go sightseeing in a Caleche, re markable vehicle which is neither hansom-cab nor Irish jaunting cart, but is native to Quebec itself. You'll visit the Plains where Wolfe and Montcalm fell . . . pastoral Ile d'Orl6ans . . . Ste-Anne de Beaupre, famous shrine. There's so much to do, so much to see. Try a French Canadian vacation this year! Come to Quebec, the Province where your dollar goes farther, and where Old World and New live side by side and are one. Never mind your passport neighbours need none.
