Three months after reassembly began, on 24 February 1912, the TSS Earnslaw was launched at Kingston in front of a large crowd. Here we see its 50-metre hull soon after the launch. On 18 October 1912, the ferry was formally commissioned and made its maiden voyage to Queenstown, which celebrated the occasion with a holiday the following day. The Earnslaw is still sailing today.
