A portrait of the White Star liner, 'Teutonic', leaving Liverpool in July 1889. The ship was built in 1889 for the Atlantic trade by Harland & Wolff Ltd in Belfast, for Ismay Imrie & Co. of Liverpool, the White Star owners. She was designed by A. H. Carlisle, who was later also responsible for White Star's 'Olympic' and 'Titanic'. When launched, 'Teutonic' caused a sensation because she and her sister ship, 'Majestic' (1890), were the first luxury liners to be specially designed for potential use as armed merchant cruisers, with gun mountings, magazines and additional bunkerage.
