A photograph of the Castle Mail Packets Company liner 'Doune Castle', in dry docks at the Thames Ironworks, Blackwall, London, taken by Edgar Tarry Adams in October 1899.

The year after the photograph was taken Castle Mail Packets Company merged with Union Line to form Castle-Union Line. Adams' father had encouraged his interest in boats from childhood and so he regularly documented the construction and launching of ships.
