Friday photo - Empress of Britain

2:39 PM

Another liner for you this week, the Empress of Britain. Built by John Brown & Co, Glasgow in 1930 for the Canadian Pacific Steamship Company.

Further information about the ship's build and career can be found here, including the fact that her launch by the Prince of Wales was a civic holiday for the people of Glasgow.

Incidentally, Clydebuilt, my usually reference source the specifics of a ship built on the Clyde has been experiencing technical difficulties this week so fingers crossed they get it sorted ok as I don't know what I'd do without their database!
