    LAHN is shown anchored in Athol Bight on Saturday 15 June 1935. This image was captured from the shore at Athol by Frederick Wilkinson at 1.15pm.
    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.
    HistoryLAHN was a 8,498 ton commercial vessel that was built by J C Teck in 1927. In 1935 it was operating for the North German Line and was registered in Breman, Germany.
