Title: Repairing of Captain Cook's ship in Endeavour River (Cook's first voyage).
Description: In June 1770 the 'Endeavour' was badly damaged running aground on the Great Barrier Reef. The ship limped into Endeavour River on the coast of New South Wales for repair. Anchors, cables and stores were carried ashore to lighten the ship which was then 'careened', or leant over, so that the damage could be inspected and repaired and the voyage continued.
