"THE "CAYUGA" ARRIVES IN TORONTO
By far the most Impressive approach to Toronto is by water, and the splendid view of the city's imposing skyline from the decks of the "Cayuga" never fails to evoke enthusiastic comment from her passengers. Entering Toronto's fine, natural harbour by the Eastern Gap, the "Cayuga" steams up the Bay, unfolding a majestic panorama of the city's waterfront and downtown business section.
In this unusual aerial photograph, it is mid-afternoon and the "Cayuga" is approaching her berth, Pier 9 at the foot of Yonge Street, after completing another lake crossing from Niagara. The array of buildings in the background includes such landmarks as the famous Royal York Hotel on the left, the Canadian Bank of Commerce Building, tallest in the British Commonwealth, and the lofty spire of St. James' Cathedral on the extreme right.
Immediately below the Royal York may be seen the Administration Building of the Toronto Harbour Commissioners and in the right foreground is their new Marine Terminal No. 11, among the most modern maritime warehouses on the continent. It forms a part of the expanded harbour facilities in the Port of Toronto which anticipate the completion of the great St. Lawrence Seaway."
