The Noronic

This is a collection of old marine pictures. They date from the early 1900's to the later part of the century. The Noronic was a great ship built and launched in 1913 at Port Arthur Ontario . The Noronic came to Toronto on September 16 1949. Noronic was tied up on pier 9,her bow facing north with her star board side against the dock . Many of the passengers and crew left for the night but some remained. That night there was a great fire that consumed 118 lives , 104 dead and 14 missing all passengers. A friend of our family actually worked on the mass embalming of the departed. While in Montreal I came across these photos. The funeral parlors original owner helped in the preparation of the dead the parlors name is Bates and Dodds. There was a morgue set up at the pier but it was later moved to the Horticultural building at the Toronto Exhibition. The steamship Noronic Memorial is located in Mount Pleasant Cemetery Toronto ,Ontario,Canada. I find these pictures quite interesting as they show what life must have been like while on the ship all those years ago. Share Follow Me on Pinterest
