This tourist kiosk was erected in 1909 to promote Port Arthur's social and economic merits to visitors and investors. Its eye-catching architecture and strategic location reflect civic boosterism and the city's rivalry with nearby Fort William decades before the two amalgamated to create Thunder Bay. This eclectic but carefully conceived structure combines a striking pagoda-shaped roof topped by a domed cupola, classically inspired pilasters flanking the entrance, and a patriotic beaver-and-maple-leaf motif over the door. Local architect H. Russell Halton's cheery design still attracts the attention of visitors today.
