"In 1901 the Canadian Pacific Railway Company acquired control of the pioneering Canadian Pacific Navigation Company which for 20 years had provided the principal steamship services for the British Columbia coast and a major link between Puget Sound and Alaska. Within a few years, the CPR transformed the CPN's assortment of outdated coastal freighters, passenger steamers, and ancient paddlewheelers into a modern fleet of luxurious coastal liners - the Princess ships - offering unprecedented services to Washington State, British Columbia, and southern Alaska. The CPR's palatial intercity liners of the famed Triangle Route between Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver captured the public eye but there were other less renowned aspects of the Princess fleet's history that could not go unrecorded: the coastal freighters; the tugs; the riverboats of the lower Fraser River; the war services of the 'Princess Kathleen' and 'Princess Marguerite'; the CPR's Atlantic Princesses; the pioneering automobile ferry 'Motor Princess', and the competition of Puget Sound Navigation, Grand Trunk Pacific, Union Steam, Canadian National, Black Ball, and finally, British Columbia Ferries." Slight bump at top of spine. Dust jacket is price clipped, has general light edge wear, moderate wear on flap-folds, light rubbing and a few tiny scuffs, wrinkling and tiny tear at top of spine - archivally taped.
