About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Canadian Pacific Steamships Ocean Service to be exact. Founded in 1915 with the merger of Canadian Pacific Steamships and the Allan Line, the company later became CP Ships and in 2005 was bought by TUI AG and is in the process of merging with their Hapag-Lloyd line. In its heyday as a passenger line, the company was renowned for its Empress fleet including the Empress of Britain and the Empress of Canada. Although the line was owned by Canadian Pacific the passenger ships at least were built and registered in Britain.

Canadian Pacific Overseas Service

A part of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Lots of good stuff if you Google it.

O Canada.

Hi there, Could we possibly get a blow up of the Canada poster? I'd love to see what it says! Thanks!
