1937 CRUISE – NEW YORK TO NOVA SCOTIA ABOARD EASTERN STEAMSHIP COMPANY
From Youtube: home movies, a trip to Nova Scotia leaving from Pier 18 in NYC. (Some notes indicate it may be 1937.) We see Yarmouth and Sandy Cove, Nova Scotia, some large passenger ships, some of coastal Canada and a clam wrapped up in a box. The Bug Light on the eastern entrance of Yarmouth Harbor can be seen at 3:33 & 3:51.
From Stuart McLean, Archivist at the Yarmouth County Museum (rearranged into the order seen in the movie): “The vessel at the beginning may be the Yarmouth or the Evangeline. The harbour just after Pier 18, NYC is Yarmouth Harbour showing waterfront buildings and one of Eastern Steamships vessels. The hotel-swimming pool is the “Digby Pines” or “The Pines” located just outside of Digby, Nova Scotia. The vessel at the end of the footage is the Eastern Steamship “Acadia” which ran from Boston, sometimes from New York, to Yarmouth from 1932 to about 1940.”
