    This image probably depicts the Federation celebrations of January 1901. The flagship of this event was BRITANNIC and the Austro-Hungarian cruiser LEOPARD (seen at left of this picture) was also present.
    SignificanceThe Hall photographic collection provides an important pictorial record of recreational boating in Sydney Harbour from the 1890s to the 1930s. The collection documents the lively sailing scene in Sydney during this period and features images of vessels ranging from large racing and cruising yachts to the great array of skiffs and the emerging technologies of motorboats. Images of the many spectators and crowds who supported and followed the sailing races are also included in this visual record.
