THE CANADIAN PACIFIC LINER 'EMPRESS OF SCOTLAND' (ex 'EMPRESS OF JAPAN')
The EMPRESS OF SCOTLAND in the Canada Dry Dock, Liverpool.In April 1952.
The EMPRESS OF SCOTLAND's masts were shortened by 44 feet to allow her to proceed up the St Lawrence to Montreal, necessitating passing under both the Quebec Bridge (about five miles upstream from Quebec City) and the Jacques Cartier Bridge at Montreal. The channel to Montreal had by this time been deepened and the EMPRESS OF SCOTLAND became the largest vessel ever to dock in Montreal.
