    Background: The Empress of Canada - Canadian Pacific's new ???8 million liner - is nearing completion at Vickers Armstrongs Walker Naval Yard, Newcastle upon Tyne.

    Her keel was laid in January 1959, and now, two years later, she is nearly ready to put to sea. The maiden voyage is from Liverpool to Montreal in April.

    The newest "Empress" is of 27,000 tons, and is the largest liner to be built on the Tyne since the Mauretania half a century ago.
