Places In Canada You Won't Believe Actually Exist

Upworthy has a lot to answer for in the way it has influenced internet article headlines. The number of superlatives used is extraordinary and unbelievable. You'll never read another headline like it again!

Sorry, I got a little carried away. Still, these fabulous pictures of places in Canada are more than a little cool, and Investigators to the great Canadian outdoors in any era can come across these places whilst trekking North to explore the unknown and unexplained. Or indeed, they may be the end point, and place of interest they are out to explore/investigate.

Two of the places mentioned are in Quebec, and I intend to write more about them at some point. Indeed, both the places pictured in Quebec are of craters. One, the Manicouagan crater, is of particular interest, as I had never heard much about it, till I was on Google maps one day, and it struck me as somethign of interest, and wondered why I had never heard more about it.

I plan to do a whole post dedicated to this in the near future.

Montreal 1920s Tourist Flyers

What it says in the title really, the MTL Blog has posted a scan of an old tourist flyer from 1925.
The original pdf can be downloaded from the Archives de Montréal here.

A great little handout for gamers from out of town, as well as a source of local information for players and Keepers alike.

Got a group of Gaslight investigators looking for work? Put an advert in the paper, that's sure to bring in the clowns!

Mosher's Detective Agency: The only office where ladies are employed!

In fact, each line of these ads is so well written, there's a great number of adventure seeds tightly packed into this short clipping.
