Looks like "The Viking" of the Viking Cruise Co. Originally "RMSPCo "Atrato" (1888, 5347grt). Sold and renamed "The Viking" 1912. Requisitioned (A.M.C.) 1914. Lost, presumed mined Jan 1915.

thanks for info ,eddyw, note the guard rails around that ironwork and no rivets viseable on ships side plates , maybe too distant to notice.

As built she had an elaborate clipper bow. New owners presumably replaced this to make her look less antiquated. Odd that they should have added the scroll work.

Countersunk riveting would give a fairly smooth finish.

Look at photos of the TITANIC. Masses if rivets topsides but the first strakes above the waterline looks very smooth.
