River thrill for spectators 1837

A serious accident was avoided on 7 September 1937 when the HMAS Vendetta was swinging from  her berth at the Brisbane Milling Company’s wharf, (top photo) and the Bidelia was leaving John Burke Ltd’s wharf at the same time. A collision was avoided but the Vendetta brushed the wharf and her stern came very close to the Bidelia. (bottom photo)
