Marine Atlantic, its predecessor CN Marine, and pre-confederation Newfoundland coastal boats have a strong and proud history serving the people of Atlantic Canada through ferry terminals, passenger vessels and rail service.
Introduced in 1913 as a member of the Reid Company of Newfoundland’s Alphabet fleet, the vessel had ice-breaking capabilities that made it a reliable ship that could be used in a variety of challenging weather conditions.
We hope you enjoy these photos which show a remarkable vessel with a strong historical attachment to the communities and people it served.
As always, we welcome your photos for posting in a future blog. Please email your photos to [email protected] including any facts such as the date and location.
Next week, we remember the SS Caribou which was torpedoed and sunk by a German U-Boat in 1942. Lest We Forget.
