the RMS 'Gothic' of the White Star Line

Seen berthed in Wellington, NZ, this was a 7,755 ton (displacement) cargo and passenger liner which operated along the New Zealand route. The Gothic could carry 104 First class passengers along with 114 Second and Steerage class passengers. Operating from its White Star berth in Plymouth, RMS Gothic would sail along the west coast of Europe to the Canary islands, then continue down to Cape Town, South Africa, heading to Australia and finally arriving in New Zealand.

The ship lasted until 1926.
