September 10 1913 - Notable Passengers
The EMPRESS OF ASIA, commanded by Samuel Robinson, began a Pacific crossing upon sailing from Vancouver on September 10th, 1913. This sailing was the first westward voyage for the EMPRESS OF ASA. To mark the occasion, George C. Bury, CPR Vice-President made an inspection of the ship. The ship reported a good passenger list with 120 Saloon passengers and many in other classes and a cargo for various ports in the Far East.
The EMPRESS OF ASIA’s departed Vancouver early, as there was an 11-foot tide to work against. Several passengers missed their passage and were left on the wharf. The stranded passengers however, were able to board the Princess Adelaide and sail to Victoria and meet the EMPRESS OF ASIA there.No passenger information is available for this crossing.
