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. - The image is dated circa mid 1889, since the Coogee Palace & Aquarium have been built (first opened 23 December 1887) & the Palace's "Toboggan Rink" slide ride is visible (it opened Saturday 27 October 1888, closed 12 months later in October 1889 & was demolished by November that year!). - There are NO swimmers or bathers in the water since public swimming or bathing during daylight hours was banned at the time (not repealed at Coogee Beach until October 1902). - General lack of sight-seers & picnickers suggests it is not a weekend photo either! ****************************** SOURCE INFO - Photographer is 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Powerhouse Museum) New South Wales for their valuable work in digitizing, archiving & making available online this rare historical content.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 image is no longer restricted by commercial Copyright, 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 a lot of bad emulsion damage areas). - Using Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 8.0 I cropped the worst damage out, enlarged the resulting image, then repaired remaining less damaged sections, removing unwanted artifacts, restoring contrast, sharpness & initially applying adjusted duo-tone curves for better tonal range. - Sepia duo-tone image later colourized & enhanced using AI software.
