I believe my great-grandparents arrived on this ship in 1913. I cannot find the name of the ship. The family immigrated to Canada in 1913 from Belgium. They may have arrived in Quebec, or Saint John, or Halifax, not certain. However they did make a return trip to Belgium in 1923, and I wonder if this photo dates from that time. There is nothing written on the back of the photo unfortunately. Can anyone help to ID it?

Two masted one funnel, three deck ship

Image: Ship. Single stack two masted ocean liner. UK Empire ensign (only union flag quarter identifiable, detailed ensign information unidentifiable: some member of UK Empire’s ensign). Four superstructure decks. Hull decks unidentifiable as portholes below resolution. Length estimated ~170 m.

    Can you post a higher resolution scan of the photograph? There is very little detail visible in this low-res image. Also, please post everything you know about the photo to help narrow the search. In particular anything you know or surmise about when, where, and by whom, even if just educated guesses and identified as such, will assist in the search. – Pieter Geerkens Sep 25 '20 at 14:43

    Where did they arrive? which port? from which country (origin & destination will help to identify potential ships). Which country ? – Mark C. Wallace Sep 25 '20 at 15:08

    It might be one of the 2 masted 1 funnel ships shown on en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_White_Star_Line_ships : the Romanic, the Canopic, the Laurentic, the Megantic, the Zelandic . – kimchi lover Sep 25 '20 at 15:58

    @John - all the information should go in the question; you've got a better chance of an answer if you edit the question. I've moved one of your comments in; please add additional information to the question. – Mark C. Wallace Sep 25 '20 at 23:42
