Online History Talk: North Sydney's Working Waterfront
North Sydney's Working Waterfront
North Sydney’s ‘working waterfront’ extends back thousands of years because it was along the foreshore that Cammeraygal men and women fished, and possibly manufactured tools and the bark canoes which characterised life on the harbour.
The first European vessel was slipped in Neutral Bay in 1832 and from the late 1800s and through the 20th century the North Sydney waterfront was a hive of industry and boat movements.
North Sydney Council Historian Dr Ian Hoskins will explore this story with artworks, photographs and maps from the Stanton Library collection.
