Passenger ship ZEALANDIA in wartime dazzle paint

Photograph of ZEALANDIA. Silver gelatin print depicting bow and starboard view of the passenger ship moored at buoy and displaying wartime 'zig-zag' paint over the entire hull and superstructure. Single funnel can be seen midships (also covered in striped paint), as well as two masts and several lifeboats lowered from davits to the water on portside. The location is possibly Farm Cove , Sydney, with city buildings visible behind.
