Saskatoon in Corman Park No. 344, Saskatchewan — The Prairie Region (North America)
C.P.R. Station, Saskatoon/Gare du C.P. (Saskatoon)
[Francais] Écartée d'abord des deux chemins de fer transcontinentaux, Saskatoon prit tant d'importance dans le commerce régional qu'elle était devenue en 1908 le carrefour de trois lignes distinctes. La construction de cette gare débuta en 1907. Identique à une gare d'Edmonton, elle comprend des toits escarpés et une tour à forme polygonale rappelant le style "chateau" recherché plut tôt par le Canadien Pacifique. Celle-ci ressemble aux petites gares construites par la compagnie.
