Ships of the Canadian Pacific Railway
They were the beautiful coastal liners that plyed the waters of the west coast. Some of the most famous of these beautiful steamers sailed the
"triangle route" between Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia.
Known as the "Princess ships" their names still resonate fondly: Princess Elaine, Princess Joan, Princess Elizabeth, and the second Princess
Marguerite, which was the last.
Sent off to the breakers, these magnificent ships are but a memory now, a reminder of a time when the most elegant mode of transportation in the
Pacific Northwest was by steam.
