Cloudy over South Wharf (Melbourne, Australia)

The South Wharf area is quite new, and is situated by the Yarra River. Construction work is still ongoing.

The Polly Woodside dates back to 1885, and is in the heritage register. It was built in Belfast and has sailed around the world many times (click on the link for more info).

I looked through the glass on the floor, but no steps… Maybe they were removed, and but the old sign remains.

ScenicSunday That’s it from me :). Hope you are having a nice Christmas break.

Please visit Scenic Sunday to see other parts of the world.

The pedestrian bridge is beautiful as well as functional; the vanished steps make me smile!
Blessings!

Lovely photos of Melbourne. I was surprised the first time I ventured into the Docklands area - it was about time our State Gov did something about it.
Cheers.

Very cool bridge, Exhibition Centre, Polly Woodside ship and the funny old "steps" sign!

The Polly Woodside looks like she's in fine shape and very well cared for. How wonderful. I hope she makes it to Gloucester some day.

Wow! The picture of the "steps" where there are no steps, just gets me! Must be eerie looking through the glass!
