There follows the listing of winter lay-up ports for the various vessels of the fleet of Canada Steamship Lines Ltd. which we trust will be of interest. Some of the names sound a bit strange? If so, that is because the list is not for the winter 1976-77 but rather for the winter 1936-37, exactly forty years ago! Perhaps it will get you in the mood for the upcoming lay-up season. By the way, only one of the ships is still in the fleet. Can you spot her?
