IMAGE INFO - The viewpoint for this historic & rare image is looking southwards from where the future Arden Street climbs the hill northwards from Bream Street towards what will be the hillside suburb of South Coogee. - The same viewpoint today [2022]:,151.2574208,3a,49.5y,.... - I have dated the image mid-way between 1882 & 1887 (ie circa 1885), since the Coogee Palace Aquarium & Baths had not yet been built (they opened November 1887) & the steam tram loop line was opened in 1882. - Note that there are two brave souls wading in the shoreline of Coogee Beach during daylight hours (not swimming, so technically not illegal under the Public Decency laws at that time). ****************************** SOURCE INFO - B&W original photographer was Henry King. - The original silver gelatin dry plate glass negative (full plate) was digitized by the Museum of Applied Arts & Science & is available from the M.A.A.S. online Tyrrell Collection here: ****************************** CREDITS - Henry King (photographer) - Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences (aka Powerhouse Museum) New South Wales for their valuable work in digitizing, archiving & making available online this rare historical content. ****************************** COPYRIGHT STATUS - The original B&W image was no longer restricted by commercial Copyright at time of download, per advice - "Out of Copyright Reason for copyright status: Created/Published Date is Before 1955 Material type: Photograph Government copyright ownership: No Government Copyright Ownership". ******************************* PROCESS INFO - I downloaded a copy of the digitized original (large file size & very faded with bad emulsion damage). - I initially repaired/cropped damaged sections using Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite (Windows), then restored contrast & sharpness & applied an adjusted duo-tone curve for better tonal range. - Duo-tone image size = 3217x2400pm [7.7MP]
