Pictorial record of my world cruise on Canadian Pacific Steamship Empress of Scotland, 1925-1926 Pollard, Harry


This album consists of the official photographs taken by Canadian Pacific photographer Harry Pollard of the around the world cruise of the C.P. R.M.S. Empress of Scotland departing New York City December 3, 1925 and returning April 10, 1926.
This album was acquired by Katherine Olivia Kinney, a passenger, as a souvenir of the cruise.
The album also includes a few signed photographs of the ship's crew, including a photograph of the ship's commander Captain R. G. Latta, a photograph of W. R. McInnes, an assistant cruise director, and a photograph of Deane H. Dickason, the cruise lecturer and press representative, Pollard, Andy Buchanan, a passenger, McInnes, and Angus MacDonald, an assistant cruise director, signed by Pollard.
The first sixty-four pages of photographs were arranged with captions by the Canadian Pacific, and the remaining thirty-five pages of photographs include handwritten captions by Kinney.
Eight clippings regarding the cruise and one folder are also present.
