What more could we ask for?

A bilingual ad for tourist lodging with a drawing at the bottom of the page of a  country scene typical of Quebec.

Foyer du touriste/Tourist Home: An ad for cabins and camping sites in Saint-André.

Guide de route du Club automobile de Québec, J. E. Renaud, Ed., 1933. Private coll. (Pierre Landry).

These sales pitches had everything it took to convince car tourists looking for cheap lodging to stop there. Depending on their budget and interests, tourists could rent a camping site or cabin. With running water, electricity and flush toilets, these cabins were practical and modern, yet had all the charm of the old Canadienne-style homes. Gas, farm products and crafts could also be purchased here.
