Whenever I see a picture of an 'EMPRESS' I am back alongside Jacques Cartier piers in Montreal, our berth being directly opposite.

Hi guys, The photo of the Britain surprises me as it looks like she is at the Gladstone Dock loading berth still discharging grain with the England ahead in the lay berth. Perhaps the Scotland or the France was in the discharge berth up ahead ... come to think of it, maybe the photo was taken when the Canada was still on her side after the fire, making that berth unavailable. I really like photos that show other activity besides just the ship... adds historical interest ... thank you.

"Empress of France" burnt out in 1953. The two sisters together would indicate 1957 or later. Possibly 'off-season' when 'England' deployed on cruising?

Eddy,

Slight slip up. It was EMRESS OF CANADA burnt out 1953, not the FRANCE.

Anyhow, the photos the EMPRESS OF BRITAIN at left and EMPRESS OF ENGLAND at right.

Woops! Yes , apologies to Keith. Canada would have been long gone though, raised and broken up 1954. Four liners in service in '57, rapid decline thereafter, alas.

Could be during the seamen's strike in 1960?

I don't think so. She is alongside and discharging grain. I'm sure they crossed itinerary once in a while.
