Historical information

Documents the minutes of the Victorian Seamen's Mission from Monday 13th January 1896 and Friday 27th January 1903. The minutes are a record of all who were involved with the Victorian Seamen's Mission Executive Committee between these dates.


This is a formal record of proceedings within the Victorian Seamen's Mission between 1896 and 1903. Entries in the book make reference to other significant objects in the collection which increases its significance greatly as a point of reference and research. For example, the entry dated Tuesday 16th November 1897 provides detail of the executive committee receiving a deputation of concerned ships' captains petitioning for the establishment of a facility on the inner city wharves.
