The "Baroona", as she was

Good friends of mine, Bill and Barbara Ellis, very kindly sent through some images of the Baroona from their collection -- and gave permission for me to include them here on Timespanner (thank you, folks!) Follow the link to the previous post, some of the history and news of the sad final demise of one of Auckland's heritage landmarks.

From Bill and Barbara's email:

"Taken while the Baroona (and the photographer) were in the mud at Sulphur Bay."

"Backing out of Devonport while on the Devonport - City run."

"Under Renovation as Captain Hook's Restaurant on Great South Road"

"The funnel - 2 Kelvin diesel engine exhaust pipes at the top."

"After completion looking down the stairwell to the lower deck"
