Merchant ships – British India


This collection includes more than 200 original images that date back almost to the middle of the 19thC . They have been digitised, generally, at a modest resolution and may best be considered to be viewed as a catalogue of some 200 vessels.

Many of these images were provided by Max Hinchcliffe.

Copies can be digitally scanned on request, by agreement. For costs and availability of obtaining any of these photos without watermark, as an electronic file, as a print from the original negative (where available) or as some other format, contact the Maritime Records and Research Centre’s Curator on mrrc@shf.org.au/home or 02 9298 3850, quoting the full file name and giving details of format wanted.

Copyright for the majority of these images from the collection is vested in the Sydney Heritage Fleet. For the remaining images every attempt has been made to ensure correct attribution. If any originator of an image notes an error the Sydney Heritage Fleet would welcome any notification and will remove that image or modify its attribution.
