About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

CPOS

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!
