In May 1914, only two years after the sinking of the Titanic, the Canadian Pacific liner, Empress of Ireland collided with a smaller vessel in the St Lawrence River. The mighty ship sank in less than 15 minutes and 1000 people died within sight of land. This illustrated history of the disaster includes almost 200 archive photographs, artworks, posters and other ephemera relating to the elegant ship and its tragic demise.
