Front caption: "657 -- 'Mount Stephen' House, Field, W.M. Notman & Sons, Montreal." To service the anticipated rush of tourists, Van Horne, builder of the Canadian Pacific Railroad, ordered the construction of a series of hotel dining stations along the main line through the mountains. The first of these was Mount Stephens House in Field, which was finished in 1886 at a cost of $20,000. Its interior was executed in high Victorian style -- complete with gas lights, heavy broacades, pump organs, and caged canaries.
