Description
An original black and white photograph of one of the two motor launches from TSS MARAMA (1907) in Alexandria, Egypt. Unknown if this is NAUTILUS (1913) or MARAMA's unnamed second motor launch, although comparative images suggest it is likely the unnamed launch. Handwritten caption reads "Marama's motor launch in harbour at Alexandria, Egypt".
From an album of photographs taken from HMNZHS No. 2 (TSS MARAMA) spanning the years 1915-1917, during MARAMA's operation as a World War I hospital ship.
