The Pumphouse was built in 1890 as a pumping station for the Sydney & Suburban Hydraulic Power Company as part of Sydney s power infrastructure before electricity provided most of its power needs.
The building was saved from demolition by the Heritage Council of NSW and was restored to become the Pumphouse Tavern, owned and operated by the Tank Stream Brewing Company, and selling boutique beer at the tavern made by the company at their own brewery.
While the microbrewing has sinced ceased, the Pumphouse Bar stills offers a choice of Australian, International and specialty beers, and caters to functions, such as the Web Directions South 2006 Post-Conference Party.
I've just taken two days off, to be official photographer at the Web Directions South, 2007 conference, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour, Sydney.

Australian women are at the forefront of promoting and working with Web Standards, usability and accessibility, both nationally and internationally.

All I know is that I'm still awake ... still working ... shaking slightly ... wishing I had an extra set of hands ... and, I will be so happy when I finish this project! ;-)
Prompted by Maxine's photo of her desk, which is looking eerily similar at the moment.
