ON THE BACK COVER:
Joseph William Heckman's career as photographer with the Canadian Pacific Railway, from 1898 to 1915, coincided with an important period in the railway's consolidation and development. More than 4,000 prints from his glass plate photographic images were mounted in large format Albums, to serve as an internal Engineering Department working record. Transferred to the CPR Corporate Archives in the early 1970s, the collection now forms one of the most comprehensive pictorial records of the railway's coast-to-coast operations. Together with Heckman's meticulous Field Book notes, it provides an intimate view of the Canadian Pacific Railway as it spanned the breadth of Canada a century ago.
