Jasper National Park, 1928

Transcription / Additional Information

At 176 pages, this is really more of a book than a tourist guidebook; parks commissioner JB Harkin had to defend its size and expense to his superiors. In its production design and its detailed examination of Jasper past and present, it is one of the finest parks guidebooks of the 1920s.
