    This image depicts the four-masted steel barque MAGDALENE VINNEN at sea. The vessel sailed into Sydney Harbour on 27 February 1933, under the command of Captain Lorenz Peters. The barque was loaded with almost 16,000 bales of wool, the fourth largest shipment to have left Sydney, before it sailed the record-breaking 82-day voyage for Falmouth, England. MAGDALENE VINNEN visited Australia again in 1935, with a cargo of wheat, lifted from Port Broughton in South Australia.
