    Frederick Wilkinson took this photograph from Bradleys Head at 5:55am of the MONOWAI underway in Sydney Harbour after a medical inspection upon arrival from San Francisco on Sunday 10 May 1931.
    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.
