HMS Caledonia interior

Above right: Another advertisement from Thornycroft’s, which highlighted the company’s diverse activities. Taken on one of the original passenger decks, the photograph shows a bath apparently still in its original location, even though the interior bulkheads have been removed and other fittings taken away. The remnants of the plumbing are visible. (Courtesy Jim Duckworth.)
