Dec. would you like to have hanging in your of- fice, a framed bird's eye view of Al- berta, with every city, town, village and settlement shown, with every ves- tage of color depicted naturally, just such a picture as you would see if you were able to climb a high pinnacle and see the whole province spread before your gaze. Such a thing transferred to the small area e? .a picture, say feet long, and S feel high, is noi only pos- sible, but that is a method by which J. A. Preston, af the firm of Kennedy Company, of Seattle, proposed as a novel scheme for publicity, to the pub- licity department of the Alberta gov- ernment. The scheme has cot been taken 'up by the government as yet, but the matter is under consideration. Preston, who is an arclfitect, 'has made a specialty of just such difficult feats as the transference of a bird's eye view of a city, or a state, or a province, with all natural to a picture, and he has succeeded mar- vellously well. He has recently made such a "picture of Prince Rupert for the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, for which he was paid about He is now engaged in. making a similar pic- ture of the state of Washington. He will make a picture of Alberta for He would require three months to complete the picture.
