Photographs

The Editor of The Log, Russell Priest, holds a collection of images in various formats, both black & white and colour, of more than 20,000 ships covering the period from the late 1800s to modern times. The work of many Australian and New Zealand photographers has been centralised in this collection to ensure they are preserved for posterity and made available for publishers, maritime researchers and collectors etc. The collection also contains images from around the globe taken by various photographers world wide. catalog

There is an almost complete record of Australian and New Zealand shipping since World War II and many which predate that. Post-war British and European shipping, especially that which traded to Australasia, is also well represented. Standard designs are also included from Victorys etc to SD14s.

Prints are available for purchase and the Catalogue can viewed or downloaded from this website - see the Russell Priest Ship Catalog (PDF format, 2.3Mb, over 20,000 records). This file is readable and searchable with the free Adobe Reader. Enquiries should be addressed to waimea@bigpond.com.au
