photos and stories from the Powerhouse Museum
With teen solo sailor Jessica Watson having sailed back into Sydney Harbour after her round the world voyage I thought this image was appropriate for the blog. The circa 1910 photograph depicts a Sydney Harbour scene of eighteen footers racing in choppy water with Fort Denison in the background. The scene will be vastly different as the 16yr old Jessica sails through in the coming weeks.
