Very rare image of the Cunarder ss Malta. Malta, built in 1865, was a classic mid-19th-century workhorse for Cunard. Built with sails and designed for cargo and passenger transport, she was versatile enough to be used on several of Cunard’s services–Liverpool to New York, Liverpool to Boston, and later the UK to the Mediterranean. She ran aground on the coast of England in 1889, but once again (luckily for Cunard), there was no loss of life.
The caption on the image states: “Cunard Steam Ship ‘Malta,’ Tho. Durant Commander.” I obtained this along with a small quantity of 1840’s-era Cunard paperwork at auction last year. Very rare and unusual item. In very good condition with some scuffing to image. Overall measures about 12″ x 7.75″.
