Canadian Rockies, Mount Stephen & Cathedral Peak Postcard
Canadian Rockies, Mount Stephen & Cathedral Peak from Burgess Pass. Divided back postcard published by Raphael Tuck & Sons. It is from their "Oilette" series, a series of postcards reproducing paintings on postcards. The artist has signed the work "Gilette" in the bottom-right corner. The postcard is not used, but according to tuckdb.org the earliest known use of this card is in 1908. The back of the postcard reads:
Mount Stephen and Cathedral Peak from Burgess Pass. From Burgess Pass a splendid view can be obtained of Mount Stephen and Cathedral Peak. (The latter is happily named, for its summit bears a wonderful resemblance to some noble ruin of Gothic architecture.) Cathedral Peak is 10,204 feet high, and, with the majestic grandeur of Mount Stephen close by, the tourist is fascinated with the beauty and magnitude of the Canadian Rockies.
