It is hard to describe the charm of the GaspPeninsula, but impossible not to feel it. It is charm compounded of so many elements. The beauty of the scenery, the clear sunshine, the life-giving air, the glorious blue of the sky, all these are part of it, but yet they hardly explain the glamour and fascination of this great vacation wonderland.
Gaspis the land of many thrills, of awe-inspiring beauty, of delightful summer resorts, of long stretches of wild country, of exquisite sand beaches, of old time habits and customs, of legends and stories, of ghosts, goblins and sprites.
It is a country inhabited by a people who still live practically as their forefathers did four hundred years ago, but where the tourist will find the very best of accomin well-appointed, up-to-date hotels and inns and boarding-houses.
THE CENTENARY YEAR
The present year, 1934, marks the fourth centenary of the discovery of Canada. In 1534, Jacques Cartier landed on the shore of GaspBay, erected a cross, and took possession of the land in the name of the King of France.
The four-hundredth anniversary of this important event is to be the occasion for an impressive celebration at Gasp, which will undoubtedly add much zest to touring the Peninsula this year. While Gaspand the Province of Quebec are the prime movers in this - bound to be colorful - fete, all Canada is wholeheartedly in support of it and contributing effectively to its success. Weighty roles are also expected to be played by official delegations from England and France, coming under distinguished leadership and in fitting array.
Particularly fortunate indeed will be those of our friends from neighbourprovinces and states who can make their visit to the old French Province coincide with this centennial and see Gasp, the superb, in festive garb which will not likely be put on again for a hundred years.
