Kanata has been given the exclusive license to produce a series of Canadian Pacific throw blankets and is proud to present the Pacific Coast Tours Cotton Throw.
When the last spike was driven on November 7, 1885, the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed and a nation was bound together. Canadian Pacific has been operating a transcontinental railway for more than 130 years, with approximately 13,700 miles of track in Canada and the United States.
The Pacific Coast Tours Cotton Throw is a fringed throw in a single-layer tapestry design. Introduce this beautifully traditional Canadian design into your home. This classic but stylish, super-soft cotton throw is the perfect size to drape over any couch or bed, offering a touch of color and sophistication to any room.
During the 1920s, the Canadian Pacific operated three transcontinental trains a day through the Canadian Pacific Rockies to Vancouver (the Imperial from Montreal, the Vancouver Express from Toronto and the Soo-Pacific Express from Chicago, St. Paul and Minneapolis). A fourth service, the Trans-Canada Limited, was added during the summer months, providing travelers with a luxurious journey in an exclusive all-sleeping-car train that carried standard and compartment sleepers, as well as an observation car and a dining car. The Trans-Canada Limited was the fastest long-distance train in North America and ran from Montreal to Vancouver in 90 hours and from Toronto in just 86 hours. This glorious route was well advertised in numerous brochures created by the company.
