The commercial vessel SS THEMISTOCLES is depicted on Sydney Harbour in this photograph. The vessel was active as a passenger ship for the Aberdeen Line and travelled between Australia and Britain.
SS THEMISTOCLES was a steamship built by Harland & Wolff at Belfast and launched on 22 September 1910. It could accommodate 103 first class, 256 third class passengers and a crew of 150. THEMISTOCLES operated as a passenger ship for the Aberdeen Line and conducted its maiden voyage from London to Sydney, Australia on 16 February 1911. During World War I it was requisitioned and used as a troop transport. THEMISTOCLES passed through management under the White Star Line in 1928 and then Shaw, Savill & Albion in 1932. In 1947 it was sold for scrap.
