After studying the steamers three stocky stacks and their distance fromthe bow I have guardedlyi concluded that this is either S.S. Princess Joan orher sister ship the S.S.Princess Eiazabeth, some on her daily cruise between Vancouver and Victoria British Columbia – except that at 17 knots only it was a slow nightime cruise with most passengers bedded down in state room while their cars waited in the ships’ garage. The ships went into service in 1930 and our of it in 1959, and so well within the range of Horace Sykes snapping. Sometimes they were used on the Victoria, Vancouver,Seattle triangle run where Horace is most likely to have found them in the light. The system of British Columbia ferries replaced them. After 1960 they gave the liesurly service in the Mediterranean.
