Tinted lithograph with large margins. 410 x 580mm (16 x 22¾"). Nicks in edges.
The S.S. Caledonia, built by Tod & McGregor for the Anchor Line, its maiden voyage February 1862. On May 3rd the same year it sailed from Glasgow to Montreal, via Quebec as shown here. Less than two years later she became stranded near Cape Cod on passage from Portland to New York: given up as a total loss, she was sold to Nickerson & Co., Boston, who salvaged her and sold her to the Boston & New Orleans Steamship Line, who renamed her 'Concordia'. In 1872, only ten years after her launch, she was wrecked. A very scarce large view of Quebec. The Anchor Line, founded in 1856, was purchased by Cunard in 1911, but continued to operate separately.
