Artist's Description

My vector drawing, made in inkscape (not an automated trace) of a WWI troopship incorporated into sea and sky images modified in gimp.

No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.

This steamship enjoyed a long and illustrious career of 24 years, from 1911 to 1935. This included service as a troopship during World War I (illustrated here) which gained her the nickname “Old Reliable”. She returned to civilian service after the war and served successfully as an ocean liner throughout the 1920s and into the first half of the 1930s, although increased competition, and the slump in trade during the Great Depression after 1930, made her operation increasingly unprofitable.

She was the largest ocean liner in the world for two periods in 1911–13,

The PD image used for my very first steamship vector drawing (no auto trace) and all other steamship vector drawings, are based on my previous vector drawings, is as follows:
