Steam Crane, Darling Harbour, NSW 1895

At Sydney Harbour, owing to its magnificent natural facilities, very little has been required to provide for shipping beyond the construction of wharfs at which ships can lie to discharge and load cargoes.  Although much work of this kind has been left to private enterprise, some of the most important wharfs have been constructed by the Government, which now yield a very considerable revenue.
