Description: Sydney was one of the deepest and safest harbours in the world. It retained an 'old world' appearance until the 20th century. The Circular Quay at the head of Sydney Cove was 1300 feet (396 m) long. It was here that ocean liners from Europe and the Far East were berthed. Exports included grain, frozen meat and ores.
