Greeting Card - 'Such A Party!'
Photographer: Samuel J Hood | Australian National Maritime Collection: 00034838
This image features children in a crate hoisted on board the warship HMAS Australia II moored at Garden Island. The event was the annual children's Christmas party and was hosted on 6 December 1930. The girl wearing glasses on the left is Miss Rosemary Game, daughter of Sir Philip (Governor of New South Wales) and Lady Gwendolen Game. The boy next to her is possibly her brother Philip Game and the boy far right is possibly her other brother, David Game. The girl with pigtails and wearing a hat is possibly Miss Rosemary Budge, daughter of Sir Harry Budge, Secretary to the Governor, Sir Philip Game.
The Samuel J Hood collection records an extensive range of maritime activity on Sydney Harbour. Hood was regarded as an important figure in early Australian photojournalism. Hood's maritime photographs are one of the most significant collections of such work in Australia.
