RMS STRATHAIRD at Circular Quay

This image shows the liner STRATHAIRD at No 4 wharf Circular Quay on Saturday 31 December 1932, due to depart at 11.30am. Wilkinson captured the image from the 8.08am ferry from Mosman to Circular Quay.


Frederick Wilkinson (1901 - 1975) migrated to Australia from England in 1911. While wokring various jobs in and around central Sydney, Wilkinson acquired a camera and began taking photographs of vessels and harbour scenes. Many of his images were used by commercial photographers for souvenir postcards.
