Artist's Description

Queenstown New Zealand.
The Earnslaw is a vintage steamship that evokes the feel of a bygone era when steamers and paddle wheelers plied Lake Wakatipu (New Zealand)and ferried sheep, cattle and passengers to lakeside stations.

The Earnslaw, a twin-screw steamer named after the 3060-metre peak at the head of Lake Wakatipu, was built in the early 1900s in Dunedin on the southeast coast of New Zealand’s South Island, dismantled, then transported by rail in numbered pieces to Kingston at the southern end of Lake Wakatipu.

In February 1912 the Earnslaw steamed on her maiden voyage to Queenstown. In service she became known as the “Lady of the Lake.” When most communities surrounding Lake Wakatipu became accessible by roads, it was planned to scrap the Earnslaw in 1968 but the Lady of the Lake was spared because of her historic value.
