The sailing ship Rangitiki, Between 1889 and 1899

Reference Number: 1/1-002380-G

Shows the Rangitiki being towed to Dunedin. Photograph taken by David Alexander de Maus. The funnel amidships belongs to the second tug. Dated from the fact that in this image she is not a full-rigged ship, her rigging having been reduced to barque rigging in 1889, and she was sold in 1899. The name Rangatiki was a mistake the owners made when registering her, and when they endeavoured to make the correction, Lloyd's had already entered it in the list.
