Cats and dogs: all at sea

Exhibition and Shows

3 Mar 2023 to 4 Jun 2023 Once Only Event

Cats and dogs have been cherished on board ships for as long as people have made sea voyages. In a life from which children and families are usually missing, and are often very much missed, pets provide a focus for emotions and affection.

Taken by Sydney photographer Sam Hood between 1900 and 1950s, this selection of photographs shows how much pets meant to many seafarers.

A touring exhibition produced by the Australian National Maritime Museum.
