The tide of migration from Europe to Australia was at its peak in 1966. I was engaged in making a detailed coverage of my home state New South Wales for National Geographic and I felt it was important to document the wave of new arrivals. As Galileo Galilei, a liner from Genoa, approached the dock at the Sydney Cove passenger terminal, people crowded the ship's rails

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
