Must be the Invercargill, the Launceston had two stump masts forrad and a tripod signalling mast superimposed over the bridge structure, she was also fitted with a deck crane aft, to serve the after holds. Having said that, the Invercargill was fitted with a 70ton jumbo which I can't make out in this picture (not enough pixels)

While we are all busy correcting each other, I might as well chip in!

Suggest the NZSCo opposite is not TURAKINA, but more likely an H class.

Agree with last comment as the Turakina only had two holds forward of accommodation - this could go on forever!

Comparing other photos of the Turakina with this one they do match. There is only two holds forward of the accommodation and the foredeck extends aft to the foremast.

even though I thought it was the Turakina I would now say it is a H boat as the Turakina had a set of samson post at the forward end of number 1 hatch
