  8. Empress of Ireland disaster illustration

    RMS Empress of Ireland was an ocean liner built in 1905 [1] by Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering at Govan on the Clyde in Scotland for Canadian Pacific Steamships.

    While steaming on the Saint Lawrence River in fog, the Empress was struck amidships by the Norwegian collier (coal freighter) SS Storstad; and the fatally damaged vessel sank quickly in the early morning of 29 May 1914. This accident claimed 1,073 lives, making it the deadliest maritime disaster in Canadian history.
