I am researching my family. My G/grandfather arrived in Sydney Australia on the Vessel Northbrook from Donegal
in 1879. Does any one know if I can get a photo of this ship?

i have just been looking for a picture of northbrook myself because my ancestors also sailed to australia on it in august 1879. i looked at various sites but i found one when i googled "northbrook ship" then i found a site called "wrecksite" and there is a photo.Hopefully that is the right one but if not you could always contact the "maritime museum".

Try this google: Ships Images - Northbrook.
Two items come up. Click item at top of the list: (Research Guide G3 etc)
Go to search at top of page.
Type in Northbrook. - click arrow.
Click first email coloured blue.
Shows Northbrook sailing ship.

Go back to beginning again and bring the two items up.
I tried the second one and it didn't come up, which is a great pity because I think it is a photo dated 1874.
...When I clicked it, I was returned to the page showing the ships in alphabetical order.

So I clicked Picture Library, just above the list, and it says that the Picture Library is closed between 1 - 5 June, so perhaps this stops me seeing the photo. Or maybe I am doing something wrong.

Maybe one of you can get it to come up - I couldn't!

Hello Brian, some of my family were passengers on the Northbrook in 1879 (one died on passage). This book might be of interest to you. I have it but have not read it. From memory it is more of a story from the Master's perspective and less of a history, but did talk about taking passengers to Australia. Other than a drawing on the cover I'm not sure if it has any pictures. I will have a look later. Hopefully you've found one already. cheers, John
