Canadian Pacific Snow Skiing Ski Resort Giclee Print
In 1884 the Canadian Pacific Railway Co. entered into ship owning and three steamers were built to operate Great Lakes services. These ships sailed across the Atlantic, were cut in half at Montreal, towed to Buffalo and rejoined. In 1886 regular passenger services were started between Montreal and Port Moody and in 1887 a service between Vancouver and the Orient commenced with chartered vessels, to be followed in 1891 by the company's own 'Empress' ships. The Columbia and Kootenay River Navigation Co was purchased in 1890 and this enabled CPR to enter the sternwheeler traffic of the Canadian Rockies lakes and river trade. The same year, passenger routes were established between Toronto, Montreal and Chicago. This beautiful piece, part of an exclusive line of incredibly high quality commemorative edition Giclee prints, is printed on a thick, 100% acid free, imported heavy archival stock. The finest museum standard archival water-based organic inks and paints are used to produce a stunningly brilliant piece with a rich, non-glare matte finish. It is a wonderful reproduction of a vintage Canadian tourism advertising art poster for sking in Canada. This piece is new and in perfect condition. This looks wonderful framed in the home, office, restaurant, school or gym and is perfect for the skier or ski fan! This is a rare Giclee, and is unusual in that it is not mass produced. Other limited edition prints are produced by the hundreds or even thousands, while this piece is printed only one at a time, individually made by special order only. Very few have ever been printed.
The quick frame option comes ready to hang and framed as shown, with acrylic glass and a solid wood black frame, no mats.
