Canadian Pacific Railway Company steamships

Subseries consists of records related to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's steamship division, which was first introduced in 1887 following the completion of the transcontinental railway. The Canadian Pacific Steamship Company (later the Canadian Pacific Steamships Ocean Services Ltd.), built a fleet of opulent ocean liners built to C.P.R. specifications, including several which operated as Royal Mail Ships for the British Empire. Canadian Pacific steamships became known for the luxury they offered passengers in addition to functioning as a major cargo carrier. Records in this subseries pertain to the Canadian Pacific steamships themselves, such as shipbuilding specifications, as well as to the ships' operations. There is a particular emphasis on the Empress line of ocean lines, although records about ships from other lines, such as the Princess and Duchess lines, are also found in this subseries.

These records include photographs and photograph albums, scrapbooks, ships histories, pamphlets, postcards, broadsides, newspaper clippings, diaries, menus and programmes, passenger lists, sailings schedules and fares, boarding cards, ship plans and technical drawings, reports, invoices, inventories, account books, log books, service records, maps, baggage labels, stationery, correspondence, ephemera, and artefacts.

Travel and Tourism with the Canadian Pacific Railway Company

Subseries consists of records related to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's travel and tourism services, advertised as "The World's Greatest Travel System." The C.P.R. operated fleets of trains and steamships as well as luxury hotels and resorts, such as the Empress Hotel in Victoria and the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The records in this subseries reflect the extensive promotion of travel opportunities across Canada and the world. Many of the records in this subseries relate to travel on the company's luxurious ocean liners, which were very popular in the 1920s and 1930s; the C.P.R. offered cruises not only to destinations such as the Caribbean or the Mediterranean, but also four-month-long around-the-world tours that called at 81 ports in 23 countries. The subseries also contains a small number of records related to travel on the Canadian Pacific Air Lines, which by the 1970s had overtaken ocean liners for international travel.

These records include pamphlets, photographs and photo albums, scrapbooks, travel diaries, postcards, newspaper clippings, newsletters, posters and broadsides, maps, steamship track charts, deck plans, menus, programmes, cards listing services and fares, baggage tags, C.P.R. stationery, correspondence, staff reports, rail and ship timetables, itineraries, passenger lists, and memorabilia.

Simpson Covenant Court Case

Series documents Sharron J. Simpson’s activism as the leader of a legal initiative challenging the proposed dissolution of the Simpson Covenant, a restrictive land sale agreement made between her grandfather, Stanley M. Simpson and the City of Kelowna in 1946.
To explain the context of the creation of the covenant: following a mill fire on S.M.S. Ltd. land on what is now Kelowna’s downtown waterfront (around the area known as Manhattan Point) S.M. Simpson sold this land to the City of Kelowna with the understanding that S.M. would sell at a reduced rate, and the City of Kelowna would agree that the land be used for civic or community (not commercial) purposes. In the 2000s, the City of Kelowna moved to dissolve the so-called “Simpson Covenant,” and in response Sharron J. Simpson launched a court challenge to enforce the maintenance of the covenant.
Series contains correspondence, legal documents (including petitions, reasons for judgment, affidavits, civic records and land title office records, City of Kelowna memoranda, press clippings and press releases, appraisal records, etc.).
