Old Gaspé Ad

I won an old Canadian National Railways (CNR) ad on eBay recently, and it arrived yesterday. The ad is for "French Canada's romantic Gaspé - Just like a trip abroad"
Gaspé Ad
The ad copy reads:
Towering cliffs thrusting into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Fishing hamlets tucked into snug harbors. Percé Rock and Bonaventure Island, famed bird sanctuary, rising sheer from the sea (above)... Let us arrange your 550-mile conducted motor tour around the Gaspé Peninsula. You'll discover why people return to this magic spot year after year. Plan your trip now; ask your nearest Canadian National office or Travel Agent about this, or the other Top Vacations listed. "We'll tell you where and take you there."

Just for interest's sake, "Canada's 10 Top Maple Leaf Vacations" were:
1. Across Canada
2. Alaska Cruise
3. British Columbia
4. Eastern Cities and Laurentians
5. Hudson Bay
6. Jasper in the Canadian Rockies
7. Minaki (Lake of the Woods)
8. Ontario Highlands
9. Provinces by the Sea
10. Romantic French Canada
