Happy vacationers.

Crowded together on the quays in the port of Montreal, people wait to board the steamboat that will take them up the Saint Lawrence River. Some are going to the regions of Charlevoix and the Lower Saint Lawrence, where they will stay in various vacation spots. They have been careful to pack their bags with everything they need for the many activities that will be offered to them. For, once arrived, they will be faced with practically too many choices: salt-water bathing, angling, golf, picnicking, horse racing, canoeing, lawn bowling, croquet, tennis, amateur photography and visits to Native villages are just some of the activities available to the summer visitors.
