EMPRESS OF ENGLAND 2214
This photograph is of the Canadian Pacific Liner 'Empress of England' and
was a postcard.
The liner was in service with the Canadian Pacific between 1957 and 1970.
The card was posted to a couple in Ballymena at 10 pm in Quebec 1960.
Written on the back was the following " Tuesday 24th. We are within sight
of land after being in the Gulf of St Lawerence and only 3 days of open ocean.
We have had a grand calm voyage there being no sea sickness with anyone. Jimmie".
They were lucky for in November 1965 the Empress of England was involved in
a collision with a Norwegian tanker in the St. Lawrence estuary.
