    Description
    Frederick Wilkinson took this photograph of the ORONSAY at No 8 wharf Woolloomooloo Bay, Sydney at 12:30pm on Thursday 13 March 1930 near the Domain baths. The E&A Line NELLORE of Greenock is in background.
    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.
