Description:
Picture probably taken in the late 60's by my uncle, between Montréal and Trois-Rivière. Those passengers were very popular on the St-Lawrence in the 50's.
It's the ST-LAWRENCE, bound to Belgium. She was sold with the TADOUSSAC. Her life finished in the UAE as an hotel!(see a picture in the Mystery ship section, from another shipspotter...maritime world is a small word!) :-D

To be clear, the ship in Copenhagen and in the Middle East was Tadoussac. While in Copenhagen she was named St. Lawrence, which obviously causes confusion.

Ths Tadoussac was towed out of Sorel in May 1965 to Copenhavn, she ended up in Jeddah in the Middle East in the sand, that was the last I heard of her. :-? Also the Tadoussac had an enclosed bottom deck with large doors for services, unlike the St lawrence had only part covered botttom deck with the remainder open.

I am not sure about this, but consider whether this might not be Canada Steamship Lines' Tadoussac, but the St. Lawrence. Both ships were sold off lakes in 1965.

The St. Lawrence was built in Lauzon, Quebec one year before (1927) the Tadoussac (1928) and the St. Lawrence was 20 feet shorter (349' 10") than the Tadoussac (370'). The Tadoussac had five life boats on each side with newer style davits than the St. Lawrence which only had four on old "bent hook" style davits. Also the St. Lawrence has a slightly shorter set of accomodations just aft of the pilot house and a few other minor differences.

These boats plied the St. Lawrence when I was a kid in the late fifties and early sixties.
