Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "The Australians
claim Sydney to be the finest harbor of the world. Its entrance is The
Heads, a natural gateway about a mile wide guarded by gigantic rocks
as high as the highest church steeple, so protecting the shipping
that, no matter how stormy the ocean outside, there are quiet waters
within. The harbor is so deep that the largest ocean steamers can sail
close up to the land, and its coast line is so long that all the ships
of all the world could anchor here and have room to spare."
