Location is Gaspe harbour, New Brunswick, Canada. No ID on steamer but larger than many other vessels plying St Lawrence routes.

This can only be "Trinidad" (1884, 2,592 grt) of the Quebec Steamship Co. She plied from Montreal/Quebec to lower St Lawrence ports (inc Gaspe) and from c1908 also carried out summer cruises to the St Lawrence from New York/Boston. She was sold in 1917 and the following year torpedoed and sunk in Irish Sea.

Thanks Eddy, I suspected it might be her, but the only photos I could find were difficult to compare. The one you provided settles it.
