Caption: Advertisement for 'Twin Navy' tobacco, circa 1911

For the Canadians of the day, their new fleet was clearly one with the Royal Navy. It is worth noting that the warship shown in this circa 1911 advertisement is much larger than anything then in service with the Royal Canadian Navy. Also, McAlpin Tobacco was the Canadian branch of a New York company. (Private collection)
