Clean, tight, unmarked; absolute minimal wear; appears unread; A story of cowardice and betrayal that remains the "most shameful incident in Canadian maritime history." "Wholesale Murder" was one charge made after the steamship Valencia, below, struck Vancouver Island's storm-lashed shore in January 1906. Over the next 40 hours the vessel was pounded to pieces less than 100 feet from shore, some 80 helpless men and women on board. Men watching from shore offered no assistance, nor did three rescue vessels which sailed away, condemning all to a lingering, lonely death.
