Charles Dickson Gregory - Chusan

Charles Dickson Gregory - Chusan
La Trobe Collection - State Library of Victoria
Romance of Sail Series - Australia $1 Stamp issued 1998

The steamship Chusan commenced mail and passenger shipping operations from Britain to Australia in 1852.  It is thought that this sketch was completed around 1903.  Despite being a steamship, the sails were the main motive power for this ship. 

This is one of a series of four Romance of Sail stamps that were issued by Australia Post in 1998.
