I am looking for a photo, print or similar of the Carrick Castle.

This may help a bit.

The Carrick Castle was not a Castle Line ship, but named after a Scottish Castle that over looked a Loch.
She is not the paddlesteamer renamed Carrick Castle and later again renamed Lady Margaret.

The year of build. Unknown.
Owner. Mr. Thomas Skinner of Glasgow.
Chartered. Messers Shaw, Saville & Co, of London.
Register. 879 tons.
Build. Composite, Bottom coppered wood, frame and topsides iron.

This voyage. Second run to New Zealand.
Captain Thyne.
Agents. Cargills, Gibbs & Co.,

Departure. Liverpool, 20th,April 1874.
Arrival. Queenstown, Ireland.* 23rd, April 1874.
Departure. 27th, April 1874.
Arrival. Bluff** New Zealand. July 13th,1874.

* Queenstown was the Port for Cork city. It has since reverted to it's former name of Cobh.
(pronounced Cove).
** Bluff was for some time also known as Port Otago. Otago being the province, Dunedin the principal city.
Dunedin has her own Port called Port Chalmers. To complicate the matter Port Chalmers is in
Otago Harbour. The two Ports are both in the South Island of New Zealand.

Thanks for your time and consideration. Fingers crossed.

Yours Faithfully,
Michael Welsh.
