    Description
    Frederick Wilkinson took this photograph of the EURIPIDES arriving in Sydney from Brisbane via Newcastle on Sunday morning 2 March 1924. Wilkinson captured the photo from Dawes Point.
    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.
    HistoryBuilt for the Aberdeen Line in 1914, acted as Australian troopship WWI. Transferred to the White Star Line in 1929 and then to Shaw, Savill & Albion in 1932 and renamed AKAROA.
