Collage photograph concerning wool bale delivery at Walsh Bay wharves

This collage features various Samuel J Hood Studio photographs. The top photograph depicts a wool bale delivery underway at Hickson Road near Walsh Bay wharves in Sydney (see 00035628). The circular and lower right image may relate to the visit of the German four-masted steel barque MAGDALENE VINNEN to Woolloomooloo, Sydney in March 1933, of which Hood produced an array of images of the crew participating in sports on deck, loading wool bales and climbing the rigging.

This photo is part of the Australian National Maritime Museum’s Samuel J. Hood Studio collection. Sam Hood (1872-1953) was a Sydney photographer with a passion for ships. His 60-year career spanned the romantic age of sail and two world wars. The photos in the collection were taken mainly in Sydney and Newcastle during the first half of the 20th century.

The ANMM undertakes research and accepts public comments that enhance the information we hold about images in our collection. This record has been updated accordingly.
