Dinner D'adieu: menu cover from RMSP 'Araguaya' (1906)
The 'Araguaya' was built by Workman Clark & Co, Belfast in 1906 for Royal Mail Steam Packet Co. She was a 10,537 gross ton ship, length 515.2ft x beam 61.3ft, one funnel, two masts, twin screw and a speed of 15 knots. There was passenger accommodation for 300-1st, 100-2nd and 800-3rd class. Launched by the Countess of Aberdeen on 5 June 1906, she sailed from Southampton on 12 October on her maiden voyage to Brazil, Montevideo and Buenos Aires , she continued on this service until 1917 when she was fitted as a hospital ship. She was handed over to the Canadian Government as a Canadian Military Hospital Ship. In 1920 she was handed back to RMSP Co, refitted and on 29 October 1920 resumed Southampton - Buenos Aires voyages. In 1926 she was refitted as a cruise ship with accommodation for 365-1st class passengers, but with the advent of the slump in 1930, was sold to Yugoslavenski Lloyd (Yugoslav Lloyd) and renamed 'Kraljica Marija'.
