A harbour view and a new beginning

A harbour view and a new beginning

More than a view of Sydney harbour but a view of the landing place for many Kytherian (and Greek)young men when arriving in Australia to start a new life. Can you imagine how bare it was in 1900 - no bridge, buildings only 5 stories high, steam ships (the Roon) at berth in Circular Quay(beyond the span)and more ships at berth in the piers to right, water taxis, sailing ships.......

Papou did not imagine this scene , he was there.
