Apprentice on SS UMBALLA with a kitten, 1910s by Australian National Maritime Museum on The Commons on Flickr.

Between 1900 and the 1950s, Sydney photographer Sam Hood took hundreds of photographs of ships and their crew for souvenirs of their visit or to send home to families. This photograph depicts an apprentice on the British India Line steamer UMBALLA nursing a kitten. For more information see Patricia Miles’ article Little Shipmates in Signals 82, 2008, pp 34-35. This photo is part of the Australian National Maritime Museum’s Samuel J. Hood Studio collection. Sam Hood (1872-1953) was a Sydney photographer with a passion for ships. His 60-year career spanned the romantic age of sail and two world wars. The photos in the collection were taken mainly in Sydney and Newcastle during the first half of the 20th century.
