TSS CANTON - 1958
from england to the far-east
Designed to serve with running mates 'Corfu' and 'Carthage', CANTON plied the busy UK - Far East Asia route, making stops at Hong Kong, India and Japan. During the war, CANTON underwent a significant conversion to serve as an armed merchant cruiser before being restored to her former glory as a passenger liner after 1945. Painted all-white and with brilliant buff funnels, the handsome little liner serviced the Far East-Asia route until 1962 when she was scrapped.
