Canadian Pacific Steamship Gazette Newspaper

Published (on board) in August 1937

Canadian Pacific purchased the 'R.M.S. Empress of Australia' steamship in 1921. She was built in Germany and named 'The Tripitz' but was obtained as a 'war prize' after World War 1. Under CP ownership, she cruised from Canada's West Coast to The Orient as one of three Empress named ships. In 1923, after a total refit in Yokohama, she was ready to depart when a devastating earthquake hit Yokohama and Tokyo and the ship became a rescue ship for days after this devastating disaster.

In 1926, she was transferred to Atlantic service and during this time period, the newspaper listed here was published (daily) on board the ship. Photo of inside page also shown and doesn't possess the aging shown on the front cover of this eight page newspaper. Measures 11" x 14". No rips, tears or pages missing. In very good condition for a newspaper published 78 years ago.

A very rare artifact for anyone who is interested in the history of Canadian Pacific Steamship Company.
