The Princess Louise was one of the few CPR BC Coast Service ships to be built British Columbia. Most everything was built in Scotland. The Princess Louise was built to replace the Princess Sophia which sank after hitting Vanderbilt reef in Alaska, sinking with all hands. Over 300 people died that night.

A great photo!

the pic, is dockside at Prince Rupert, and was the only year of joint CN-CP service! mrdot.

this post is a real 'cracker jack' the re-named Princess Norah was only for a short time under the name, and very few new this vessel as the North coast vessel of this name, and of course the dockside Princess Louise was one of the only vessels built here in BC for the CPR! mrdot.
