User Terms

    Frederick Wilkinson took this photograph of the ORMONDE at 11:36am on 26 January 1931 onboard a ferry travelling from Circular Quay to Mosman. The ORMONDE is dressed overall as the flagship for the annual Anniversary Regatta in Sydney Harbour.
    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.
