Canadian Pacific’s S.S. Princess Marguerite steaming to Victoria, B.C., Canada. The ship is sailing on the day run from Seattle, Washington, in the 1960s. Trial Island is seen in the background. The Canadian Pacific’s princess liners provided service between Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle. The small liners were called “night boats” and offered first class overnight accommodations between these cities on what CP called the “triangle route.” The overnight service ended in the 1950s but the seasonal day service between Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle continued into the 1970s.
