    Very old photo so no traffic, totally different sense of human scale without being full of cars and fast traffic dangerous roads.

    I know it is the next headland over, but this is surely more than a coincidence?: Tom Roberts "Sydney Harbour from Milson's Point" 1897

    Notice the bunya pine already being planted as a street or large garden tree. They are a Queensland tree. Hence this one has presumably been cultivated and planted, here. Such magnificent trees. Seem to have dropped out of favour these days. A pity. (Araucaria bidwillii)

    A popular view - I always wondered what the three flagpoles were for - part of a signalling system? Unfortunately the Tom Roberts painting "Sydney Harbour from Milson's Point" 1897 (see revised link above) is not this area, but Darling Harbour from Balmain (where Roberts was living at the time). The Town Hall, St Andrews, and the old Pyrmont Bridge are clearly visible. Who is going to tell the Art Gallery of NSW ?!

    The upgraded Zoom function at the Persistent URL for all these PhM images is even more stunning. Whack it on Full Screen +++ to see right back in time . . .

    So, it's a view from Blues Point towards Walsh Bay / Millers point, not Pyrmont …
