Description The SS 'Garonne' was built in 1871 by John Elder & Co. at Glasgow. Her maiden voyage was from Liverpool to Valparaiso. In June 1877 she was sold to the Orient Pacific Line for service to Australia via the Cape. Her first voyage to Australia was in April 1878. In July 1889 she started her last voyage to Australia before operating as a cruise ship. She was sold to F. Waterhouse of Seattle in 1897 for use during the Alaska gold rush. Two years later was used by the American government for use as a troopship during the Spanish-American war. In 1905 she was broken up at Genoa. Print
