The SS Scotia at Caernarfon, Gwynedd, Wales. The Scotia was built in 1902 and was used on the Heysham to Isle of Man service, and the Holyhead to Dublin service until 1928. The journey was less than two hours and passengers could walk on the deck or sit in cabins on the journey, or have a meal in the restaurant. The cabins were lavishly furnished and well decorated.
