The shipboard diary was written by C.W. Loughridge, the fourth officer of a cargo vessel, the "Torr Head" on its outward voyage from Ireland to Australia, via the Cape of Good Hope. It includes much observational commentary on Port Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and in particular Brisbane where the ship docked for almost a fortnight. Loughridge's sketches and watercolours record various aspects of the ship and its equipment, as well as maritime scenes observed from the deck.
