Shipping News as found in

The Montreal Gazette

of February, 1907

In February 1907, all the main shipping lines serving Montreal via rail connection are listed in the Montreal Gazette newspaper.

Being the winter season, the ships were unable to dock at Montreal or Quebec. The nearest ice-free port was Portland, Maine. The nearest Canadian port was St. John, New Brunswick. Halifax was also a major ice-free Canadian port.

John Shill, the first member of the Shill family to immigrate to Montreal, Canada, arrived February 10th or 11th on a train from Halifax, where Allan Line’s ship the Siberian landed.
