Passengers posing in various states of convivial socializing in 1950s era Canadian Pacific publicity photo. The view is inside the lounge of the round-end dome observation car Algonquin Park, which also included three double bedrooms and one drawing room. CP rostered 18 cars named for Canada's national and provincial parks. The murals and paintings that adorned the lounge were furnished by the Royal Canadian Academy of the Arts. Observation-lounge cars catered to affluent passengers, and this photo depicts an all-white crowd. Note also the couple at right, where the man provides a light for the woman's cigarette. Today, both Amtrak and Via Rail Canada (current operator of The Canadian) enforce smoke-free policies aboard their trains.
