RMS Transvaal Castle by G. H. Davis

Detailed cross-section drawing of the new mailship for the Union-Castle fleet, R.M.S. Transvaal Castle, which made her maiden voyage from Southampton to South Africa on 18 January 1962. She was built by John Brown's on the Clyde and launched a year before that by Lady Cayzer, wife of Sir Nicholas Cayzer, Chairman of the Union-Castle Line. The ship could carry more than 700 passengers and was 760 feet long and 90 feet wide from port rail to starboard rail amidships. There was no first, second or tourist class and every passenger had run of her public rooms which included a 200 seat cinema, a sunlit swimming pool, an Elizabeth Arden beauty salon and a gymnasium. En route to South Africa, during the 13 and a half day voyage, the ship stopped at Las Palmas, Port Elizabeth and East London on the way there and Madeira instead of Las Palmas on its return route. Date: 1962
