    Frederick Wilkinson took this photograph of the WAIWERA at the Aberdeen Wharf, Sydney on Sunday afternoon 16 March 1924. Wilkinson took this photo aboard a ferry from Darling Street, Balmain East to Erskine Street, Darling Harbour. The WAIWERA had arrived in Sydney from Antwerp, Belgium via ports three days earlier.
    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.
