From the series "Ships of the Gilded Age" by Brian Palm. The passenger steamer "Chelohsin" was built in the Dublin Dockyards in 1910 for service in British Columbian waters; she was delivered to the Union Steam Ship Company of Vancouver in 1911. With four decks devoted to passenger accommodation, which was on an elaborate scale for a vessel of this size, the ship included extensive sleeping cabins, large observation saloon, smoking room, ladies' boudoir, dining saloon, etc., all neatly and artistically panelled in carved hardwoods. She is depicted departing on her long maiden voyage of 14, 400 sea miles to Vancouver, B.C., via the straits of Magellan. Vancouver was reached "all well" without delay or incident after a particularly smart passage.
