The steamer Harland was launched in the Joseph McGill shipyard at Shelburne, Nova Scotia, in May, 1908. The ship was built under contract for The New Burrell-Johnson Iron Co., of Yarmouth, but when completed was owned and operated by the Island Steamship Co. of Charlottetown, P.E.I. The ship was used in river service in the Charlottetown area for freight and passengers. Her principal dimensions were length over all, 120 ft., breadth of beam, 27 ft., draught of water, 7 ft., 6 in.

The SS Harland made runs up and down the West River from 1908 to 1938, carrying passengers and cargo. The steamship served for 27 years straight with the exception of the year 1918, when she was put into service on a Nova Scotia Route. The Harland was the main public passenger ferry which ran up the river each Saturday with Captain John MacLaine at the helm. The steamer was capable of holding up to 200 passengers on its two passenger decks. The Harland made her final trip in the fall of 1935. In November of 1936, the Harland was sold to Straits Shipping & Contruction Co. in Sydney, Nova Scotia.

Hallidays wharf was in Belfast, Prince Edward Island, presumably named for the family living on the property where the wharf was situated.
