Description


This is a nice example of the 1939 topographical survey chart or map of the beautiful Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada. The map covers the entire park and its vicinity. Throughout, the map marks railroad lines, roads, trails, marshes, rapids, bridges, forests, glaciers, cliffs, streams, falls, marshes and other topographical features. Cabins, buildings, offices and mines are also noted. A large inset in the lower left quadrant depicts the northwest part of the park.

Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest national park. Located in the Canadian Rockies, it is also one of the world’s most visited national parks.

The map was originally compiled, drawn and printed at the office of the Surveyor General, Ottawa in 1932 and was reprinted with corrections in 1939. Issued by the Department of Mines and Resources, Surveys and Engineering Branch.
