Circular Quay, ferries

This view of Sydney Harbour to the Sydney Harbour Bridge was from the viewing platform above Circular Quay railway station. These two First Fleet Class ferries are seen here departing from the Circular Quay ferry wharves. They are named the Scarborough and the Charlotte after two of eleven ships of the First Fleet that sailed to Australia in 1787. These two Sydney Ferries were acquired in 1986 and 1985.

  15. Very nicely composed, Jim!

    «Louis» appreciates your contributions to his Sunday Bridges meme. His weekend work schedule prevents him from spending much time on the computer and it is rare for him to be able to comment on the contributors posts. That doesn't mean that he doesn't appreciate the participation!
