Americans flocking to Canada for royal visit

June 26, 1901

"Americans are taking up all of the available hotel space in Quebec and Montreal," in order to catch a glimpse of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York, reports the New York Times. As soon as the visit was announced, hotel managers began to receive letters from Americans requesting rooms, and nearly all the rooms have been booked by Americans. Because of this, the Windsor Hotel has asked the Canadian Manufacturers Association to move their convention until September.
