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.
