Description


This is a nice example of the 1939 topographical survey chart or map of the beautiful Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada, part of the Canadian Rockies. The map covers the northern part of the 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. Two inset maps are included in the lower left quadrant.

Jasper National Park was originally called Fitzhugh before it was renamed after Jasper Hawes, the operator of the North West Company trading post. The park became a UNSECO World Heritage Site in 1948.

The map was originally compiled, drawn and printed at the office of the Surveyor General, Ottawa in 1934 and was reprinted with corrections in 1939. Issued by the Department of Mines and Resources, Surveys and Engineering Branch.
