One of a collection of fifteen black and white photographs showing passenger and cargo ships in Australian waters in the 1920s and 1930s.

It changed ownership in 1937 and was re-named MV Ringar. It survived World War II serving with the London-based Norwegian Shipping & Trade Mission (Nortraship) which administered the Norwegian-owned merchant shipping fleet outside occupied Norway. After several more postwar changes of ownership and name the vessel was scrapped in China during 1967.
