A Visit to the Museum in Port Adelaide

The Maritime Museum is holding a photographic exhibition “Hidden Port : Brought to Light’ of the old empty buildings in Pt Adelaide, the large black and white prints taken on digital and film are certainly worth the time to drive down and visit. While I was there I took a few images within the museum which is in an 1850’s bond store built of stone, massive wood structures and jarrah flooring.

For more information on the exhibition please and to see the images please visit http://www.hiddenport.net/
