Paddle steamer

The Rawhiti II, a stern-wheel paddle steamer built specially by the Roose Shipping Company for working the Waikato River, passes under the Hamilton railway bridge on its first voyage in 1925. The vessel, which carried passengers and all kinds of cargoes, became a familiar sight on the river. Caesar Roose and his fleet of vessels dominated river transport in the 20th century.
