Description:

Colonial lithograph of the Orient Line steamships, Orotava and Oruba designed by the PSNC as smaller versions of Orizaba with funnels placed closer together. They were built for the Valparaiso trade and re-allocated to the Australian run in in mid-1890. They were 5850 gross tons, 430 feet long

Orotava became an armed merchant cruiser in WW1, and was scrapped afterwards in 1919. Oruba was taken over by the Admiralty for conversion as a dummy replica of the battleship Orion, and was later scuttled to form a breakwater in the Aegean.
