the SS 'Monowai' art

A famous ship in NZ maritime's history. The Union Steam Ship Company ship is the subject of a Sunday 13th and Thursday 17th broadcast called New Zealand Maritime Memories on Coast Access Radio 104.7 FM. The program will also feature music by Hans Zimmer from the movie Crimson Tide.

The oil painting by Wallace Trickett shows her in peacetime duties on a cruise around Milford Sound in the South Island. It was purchased by the Otago University History and Culture department in Dunedin.
