Tin town, Middle Harbour

Tin Town, Middle Harbour

Tin Town, Middle Harbour, postcard.

This unique postcard depicting a camp made out of kerosene tins is postmarked Mosman 1908. It is thought to be located in Mosman overlooking Quakers Hat Bay, near Cremorne and opposite Folly Point. Adding to the charm of this post card is the inclusion of a man, no doubt a resident, wearing a hat.

Mosman boasted many camps including artists’ camps, weekend camps for fishing and sailing and those appearing during The Depression of the 1930s.

Mosman Library would like to hear from anyone who may know of this camp and its exact location.
