Another ship about to be launched


You can almost hear the cheers as she slips into the water.

Pomp and Ceremony accompanied the launching of a new ship at Huskisson, At the time Huskisson still had a small local population, but with the ship building industry supporting so many other trades in the area, the town would soon fill with crowds of onlookers. Finely dressed ladies, smartly dressed men, families and workers would come down to the river side to watch another ship being christened, and turn the event into a great celebration.
