This sectioned model (scale 1:16) of the refrigerated hold shows the cold storage installation for meat and dairy produce. The vesel was a screw steamer that was built of steel in 1898 for the New Zealand Shipping Co Ltd. She could carry 100,000 carcases. Rapid discharge of the cargo was effected by a hand or steam-driven sprocket-chain lift which reached from the bottom of the hold to the upper deck. This was patented by Captain G H Noakes in 1898.
