The Ship's List


A D Edwardes Collection at the State Library


Over 2,000 digitised images from the A D Edwardes Collection have been added to the South Australiana Database on the State Library‚Äôs website.  The A D Edwardes Collection consists of 8,000 photographs of ships, mainly sailing vessels, which visited Australian ports from around the world from 1865 to 1920.  A quarter of the collection has been digitized and having made a good start, the library is eager to continue this project.




You can view images from the collection by searching the South Australiana Database under the name of the collection, A D Edwardes Collection, the name of a ship (e.g. Cutty Sark) or in keyword, Edwardes and the name of a port (e.g. Edwardes Collection and Port Adelaide, 190 hits or Edwardes Collection and Port Augusta, 28 hits).  




These photos will be of interest to family historians and shipping enthusiasts.  If you have any queries about this collection please do not hesitate to contact Stamos Ganiaris at the State Library.
