The Good Company book. The fascinating story of the legendary Union Steamship Company, which operated up and down the BC coast between 1890 and 1955.
The Good Company book. If British Columbia has a favourite transportation saga, it is the story. The Union Steamship Company was an essential part of BC life during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The Union Steamship Company was bought out by the Canadian Pacific Steamships in 1948 in a marriage at the Senior Home. The Good Company – An Affectionate History of the Union Steamships. Madeira Park: Harbor Publishing. The SS Noronic fire in Toronto forced the Federal Maritime Department to change marine regulations regarding wooden passenger vessels, while the nature of the BC coastal fleet changed more to freight and a tug and barge operation. The Union Steamships ran until 1956 when a strike finished the fleet. The assets of the Company were taken over by Northland Navigation in 1962.
And if there is a worthy tribute to the Union Steamships, it is this generously illustrated history.
