Though given a fuller body than Thompson's earlier vessels, the Sophocles was still a pretty little ship. She was designed and intended to be an economical carrier, rather than a record breaker, and she made the Sydney-London wool run in 114 days in 1888-1889.

Here, artist Efren Erese has captured the elegance of this historic ship.
