How can I find a picture of a ship?
SA Maritime Museum Passengers Database
We have posted over 1,000 pictures of ships in our Passengers Database which can be seen at the Maritime Museum or online at http://passengersinhistory.sa.gov.au/
We hold a collection that includes upwards of 4,000 pictures of ships in the Australian trades and our volunteers are working to place those online.
