This photograph illustrates just how dynamic the ship building industry was at Huskisson, the foreshore is a mess of building material and debris, a far cry from the area now.
There didn’t seem to be much regard for the local environment back then or it seems thought for the future.

Like all industries in those days the end product justified the ways and means, Eventually the ship building became unprofitable and faded away, leaving the area to slowly become the magnificent place we see today.
