Repro ID: G982
Description: The huge (13,443 gross tonnage) liner 'Minneapolis' (1900), built in Belfast for the American-owned Atlantic Transport Line. She operated on the London - New York route until World War I. In 1915, she was taken over as a military transport, and was torpedoed and sunk in the Mediterranean in the following year. She was in Tilbury Dock during the census of March 1901, and was easily the largest vessel anywhere in the port of London.
