Homeric was launched on December 17, 1913 for North German Lloyd as Columbus and was turned over to the British Government as a war prize in 1919. She was purchased by White Star and renamed Homeric. Truly a magnificent ship with exquisite interiors, the largest twin-screw reciprocating engine ship in the world, her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York was February 15, 1922. Her intermediate speed of 18 knots meant she was always falling behind schedule. After conversion to oil in 1923, her speed increased to 19.5 knots. Her last voyage to New York was June 1, 1932 when she was transferred to permanent cruising work.
A remarkable reference to this great White Star liner and looks great framed.
