Beautiful Ship Moored in Sydney Harbour in 1931

This cool old photo shows the RMS Ormonde in Sydney Harbour. In the background, the Harbour Bridge is still being built. The photo is from 1931.

This image depicts the Orient Steam Navigation Company’s RMS ORMONDE in Sydney Harbour with the Sydney Harbour Bridge almost complete in the background. The vessel was the flagship at the annual Anniversary Regatta held on Sydney Harbour on 26 January 1931. It was moored off Cremorne Point and ferry steamers sailed to and from the vessel carrying special guests and the general public to attend the luncheon on board.
