Historical Notes: The Dunedin was built in 1874, designed for the carrying of immigrants. She was known particularly for being one of the first ships to carry frozen meat to England, being fitted with the facilities in 1882. She traded mainly to Dunedin, completing 12 voyages to Port Chalmers, three to Auckland and two to Lyttelton. Her last visit to New Zealand was in 1889. She left New Zealand on 19 March, 1890 for London, but never reached her destination. She is presumed to have been lost somewhere around Cape Horn.
