Skagway, Alaska's Ship Signature Wall
Here are signatures of two the legendary cruise ships that have run the Alaska route for Canadian Pacific Railway Coast Service, also known as British Columbia Coast Steamships. The 330-foot Princess Charlotte was built in Glasgow in 1908, and served the West Coast until 1949. The 331-foot Princess Louise was built in North Vancouver in 1921, and worked until 1964 when she was moved to Los Angeles, where she was moored and opened as a restaurant. It closed in 1988, and the following year, the ship capsized. In 1990 she sunk in deep water while being towed to Catalina Island where she was to be sunk as an artificial reef.
