David Moore photographed every activity concerned with the Himalaya, from the moment the liner docked until it sailed.
I returned to the ship time and again to photograph English automobiles being unloaded, Lascar seamen holystoning the teak deck, painters swinging on gantries over the side, stewards polishing vast quantities of silverware, frozen lamb carcasses and bales of wool being loaded aboard, and much more.

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.
