A 19th century artist’s imagined representation of Sir John Franklin’s lost ships, the Erebus and the Terror. (HARPER COLLECTION) The 1845-46 vessels, the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror have been missing for more than 160 years, and this past August Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced a new Parks Canada project to continue the search for the lost vessels.
The ship Gjoa. Used by explorer Roald Amundsen to discover the NW Passage. Left in SF, CA by him because he didn't have the funds to take to Norway. Eventually saved by the local Norwegian community and sent to Oslo.
