Repro ID: G0054
Description: The 'Delphic' (1897) was owned by the White Star Line. At 8,273 tons, she was easily the largest ship in the inner London docks at the time of the 1901 census. She carried troops and horses to South Africa during the Boer War, and presumably was in London in connection with this (White Star ships normally sailed from Liverpool). She was torpedoed by a U-boat in August 1917.
