The bay full of whales

September 28th 1901.

Captain M’Veigh, of the Velocity states.
”Having put into Jervis Bay on the 12th instant from stress of weather, he found the bay full of whales,  so much so that they had scarcely room to swing;  large shoals were also seen along the coast”.


Amongst this collection of old articles, were a few lines of text that help paint a picture of the times around Jervis Bay in 1851.
