    SignificanceThis collection of nitrate negatives was taken by Harold Nossiter and his son Harold Nossiter Junior in the 1920s and 30s and provides an interesting, and personal record of sailing in Harold Nossiter’s yachts UTIEKAH II, on the NSW coast, and SIRIUS, on the world cruise from 1935 - 1937. It shows a range of subjects from pleasure cruising with family and friends, times on board the world cruise, the activities of the crew, and their visits to then exotic ports of call. They provide a wonderful, lively record of the increasing popularity of cruising as a sport in the 1920s and 30s and the first world cruise by an Australian yacht.
    HistoryThe negatives depict the voyages and cruises of the Nossiter Family 1922 - 1941. Harold Nossiter Senior (1875 - 1956) son of Thomas Nossiter (1840 - 1923) and Anne Hossell (1843 - 1917).
