New England's Maritime History - a note

Photo: Lismore, anchored Lismore, 1884

Over twelve months ago, on 27 May 2006, I discussed the impact of the Great Dividing Range on New England's transport patterns. A little later, I looked at transport costs and the way this affected life in early colonial New England.

This was followed by two posts on paddle steamers and inland water transport (first, second).

At the time, my intention was to go on to look at the history of shipping in New England. I then got sidetracked. So this post is simply a note to myself to do something about this.

In this context, there is an interesting site, Maritime Heritage Online, providing a range of interesting material on shipping in NSW.
