     The Port of Vancouver’s terminals, wharves and piers sit on the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, who relied on the waters of the Burrard Inlet and have a saying “When the tide goes out, the table is set” — referring to the abundance of food that came from the inlet. 

     This adventure in researching, documenting, and sharing the life and times of Walter Frost and these Holland-America Line ships that visited the Port of Vancouver would not have been possible without the financial, technical, and moral support of the following people and organizations.
