    Description
    SS ANCHISES was photographed leaving Sydney Harbour for Liverpool and Hobart on Friday 15 February 1924. ANCHISES was the first fruit vessel to arrive during the 1924 season.
    SignificanceThis photograph is part of the F G Wilkinson Photograph Collection, comprising more than 700 glass plate negatives of ships in Sydney Harbour between 1919 and 1936. The collection provides an extensive and well-documented coverage of the changing styles of shipping in the port of Sydney before the gradual decline of the coastal trade, and in a period which was probably the peak reached by commercial shipping in Australia. The backgrounds also reveal the changing face of the city and harbour foreshores.
