The 391grt RIVER CITY entering the Wanganui River mouth as she makes for her berth at Castlecliffe , Wanganui during the 1950's. She was built for the Wanganui Shipping Company Ltd in Holland in 1951. She traded between Wanganui, Wellington, Lyttelton and Timaru. She was sold to the Holm Shipping Co, in 1964 and re named HOLMBRAE. Wanganui is also known as the River City, once one of NZ 's busiest small ports it now only has a small fishing fleet working from it.

A lovely little ship - I used to go away on her in the school holidays when at Secondary school - Cpt R.D. 'Jock', Stewart was her Master . I always think my parents allowed these trips of curing me of going to sea - It didn't work.

The Wanganui Shipping Co had an office in lower Victoria Avenue not far from the town wharf. On the large plate glass window was a painted a wonderful profile of their single ship, the 'River City'. As a boy I loved that window and always wondered what happened to it.
