Immigration Archives - Canadian Immigrant Inspection Card - 1915

Canadian Immigrant Inspection Card issued to a Steerage Passenger on board the Canadian Pacific steamship S.S. Missanabie departing from Liverpool 13 March 1915. The Missanabie was notable in that it had a very short life, with a maiden voyage on 7 October 1914, the ship of torpedoed and sunk by a German U-Boat on 9 September 1918. This represents a very rare immigrant document from a ship in service less than four years.
