PRINCESS LOUISE

PRINCESS LOUISE

Dug up some old negatives. This is a floating restaurant in San Pedro, California in 1976. Perhaps someone out there knows more? Looks like an old CP steamer. I was visiting California with Chevron VLCC's at the time.

Nice photo.

When I was on the Royal Viking Star I used to see the Princess Louise quite often. Apart from being a resturant If you wanted you could even get married onboard her.

In the mid sixties she became a restaurant at San Pedro (Los Angeles Harbor).
Some years back the restaurant failed, the ship was moved to a Terminal Island layup where she later sank. Raised and sunk at sea.
Built at North Vancouver in 1921 by the Wallace SB & DD Co. for Canadian Pacific.
4,032GT, 317' x 48', 4cyl 3exp engine, service speed 16 knots, 262 berths.
For about forty years she was used mostly on the service, Vancouver to Skagway.

I remember having lunch onboard her. Geez, that was probably back in 1979 or so. I was in port and my cousin came down and joined me.

She was a lovely old lady, I sailed in her on deck in 1955-6 on the Skagway run and then stood by all winter in Victoria punching a clock every hour for fire watch.
