Walk down memory lane


Cheslakee was a steamship that operated from 1910 to 1913 under the ownership of the Union Steamship Company of British Columbia. In 1913, the ship sank, killing seven people. This was the only accident involving a passenger fatality in the 70-year history (1889-1959) of the Union Steamship Company. Following the sinking, Cheslakee was raised, reconstructed, and launched as Union Steamship Cheakamus. Posted on You Know You Grew up in Powell River if…. by Richard Adaszynski.
