    http://www.flickr.com/photos/state-records-nsw Thank you so much for going to the trouble of tracking down this image of Ferry Lane. http://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia/ This is the photo I mentioned here http://www.flickr.com/photos/pellethepoet/4330217516/ that was incorrectly identified in Harvey Shore's book.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Thanks so much for that!!! It's the same photo that appeared in ‘The City of Sydney: the Story of its Growth From its Foundation to the Present Day’ by John Arthur Barry (NSW Bookstall Company, 1902), page 76, a copy of which is in the collection of the Macleay Museum, University of Sydney. They let me share it here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/pellethepoet/5036046594/ I'll pass on the info to them, as their date for this photo is c.1902 (from the date the booklet was published). Your article shows it dates from the previous year.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] The early Sydney "expert" Dr. Houison mentioned in the article is Dr. Andrew Houison (1850-1912) - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Houison . His papers, and I imagine his photo collection mentioned in the article, are held by the State Library of NSW - acms.sl.nsw.gov.au/item/itemDetailPaged.aspx?itemID=949776
