Ruahine (1891-1900)

This old ‘cabinet card‘ photograph shows the New Zealand Shipping Company’s Ruahine (the first of three NZSC ships of the same name). Published by F. C. Gould & Son of Gravesend. The Ruahine was built by Denny & Co, Dumbarton. She could carry 74 first class, 36 second class, and 300 steerage passengers, as well as 71,000 carcasses in the refrigerated space!
