A Little Gem of Vancouver and Canadian Maritime History
ciscokid23, 09-10-2022
Read the review by BenLar137 below. It is very thorough, and I share the high praises. What I can add is that, with the current competition for conflicting claims of sovereignty over the Artic region, a thorough knowledge of the accomplishments of Larsen and the St. Roch has never been more relevant. In addition, the museum houses a small exhibit and the bell from the "Princess Sophia," the Canadian Pacific Steamship which sank off Juneau, Alaska, in 1918, with no survivors after hitting a submerged reef - a little-known maritime tragedy. The passenger ship exhibit with fantastic models is very worthwhile. To add to the experience, go to the museum by False Creek Ferries (note that the Aquabus line does not reach that far).
A glorious tribute to a little-known Canadian legend and hero

These days, it's so important to remember the heroes of the past, along with those of today. While the Bluenose is Canada's most famous ship, the St Roch, which has been brilliantly preserved and is on display here, is by far the most accomplished. And the person who was at the helm to achieve these accomplishments (first ship to circumnavigate North America via the Panama Canal; first ship to transit the Northwest Passage west to east; first ship to transit the Northwest Passage in one season, on it's second Arctic expedition, returning to Vancouver from St Johns, going west to east) was Captain Henry Larsen. Canada is SO lucky to have this hero in our history books, and it's a shame so few Canadians know what he's done...
