These images are taken from Wills's Cigarettes of England.  They were issued by the Imperial Tobacco Co of Great Britain and Ireland. 1914

Government Buildings, Toronto
Toronto, the capital of the Province of Ontario and the second largest city in the Dominion, had a population of about 445,600 in 1913. It is the center of extensive shipping interests on the Great Lakes, a great industrial city, and also the seat of the Legislature. The Provincial Government is invested in a Lieut. Governor, a Cabinet, and an elected Legislative Assemble of 106 members.

Government Buildings, Winnipeg
Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba, is the third largest city in Canada; population 136,035 (1911). The Provincial Government of Manitoba consists of a Lieut. Governor, an Executive Council of 6 and a Legislative Assembly of 41 members. Winnipeg possesses a fine University and an Agricultural College. The opening up of Manitoba was brought about by the building of the C.P. Railway.

Few of the capital cities of the world can surpass Ottawa for its commanding situation and the beauty of its surroundings. Our picture shows the imposing Parliament buildings on the left, and on the extreme right the new Central Station of the Grand Trunk Railway. Ottawa is a city of noble buildings, beautiful natural parks, and splendid roadways. The Canadian Government Commission superintends the laying out of the new roads and parks.

Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
British Columbia is the largest Province of the Dominion. The capital, Victoria, had a population of 31,660 in 1911. Though one of the youngest of the Canadian Provinces, British Columbia is developing very rapidly, for is enjoys a temperate climate, and possesses great mineral wealth, besides much timber and extensive fisheries. Our illustration shows the handsome edifice of the Provincial Parliament.

Government Buildings, Halifax, N.S.
The picture shows the home of the Legislature of Nova Scotia, which consists of a Lieut. Governor, a Legislative Council of 21 members, and a House of Assembly of 38. Nova Scotia was first settled by the French at the end of the 16 th century, and was known as Acadia until it became a British possession in 1713. The province is chiefly agricultural, being especially noted for its fruit growing.

Parliament Buildings, Quebec
This imposing pile of buildings is the center of the Provincial Government of Quebec, which includes 24 members, under the presidency of the Lieut. Governor. The province of Quebec is populated chiefly by French Canadians, among whom race-tradition is very strong. French is everywhere spoken, and the Roman Church is the State Church, and is all powerful.
