CBK Floor Map of Canada

“An interesting feature of the main transmitter floor is a huge map of Canada. It is of inlaid battleship linoleum approximately forty feet by seventeen feet. Each province is shown in alternating colors of buff and terracotta with lakes, bays and oceans in mottled blue. All radio stations (in 1939) are marked with small black triangles with call letters inlaid in black” –Doug Squires,
from “Prairie Reflections.”
