"Imperoyal, situated on the Atlantic sea-board stands out in an imposing array of chimneys by day and in a dazzling blaze of light by night. It draws all ships to its docks for their supply of fuel and oil, for as the ships round McNab’s Island, Imperoyal is the first object in sight. Thus it stands as its own advertisement, a monument of Imperial Service."
D. M. Allen, Superintendent 1921
