    The Swedish cargo vessel TISNAREN is shown at the F & S Buoy Neutral Bay on Sunday morning 15 January 1933. This image was captured from the 10.25am boat travelling from Mosman to Circular Quay via Cremorne, Sydney.
    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.
    HistoryTISNAREN was a steel-screw vessel of 5,747 tons built by Aktieb Gotaverken at Gothenburg, Sweeden in 1918. In 1933 it was owned by Redriakties Transatlantic and registered in Gothenburg under a Swedish flag. It took part in operations during World War II and was scrapped in 1942.
