  1. By .

    One hundred years ago this morning:

    Sudden Death.β€”Whilst working on the Fremantle wharf this morning, Michael Bowman was taken ill suddenly, and was conveyed to the Fremantle hospital in the ambulance where he died an hour after being admitted. Later Dr. Williams certified that death was due to natural causes. The deceased was a widower and had two sons, whose whereabouts are unknown.

    The roof of this building was ripped off and is lying intact on the ground in front of it. And the sun is setting, but that happens every day. This little brick remnant of Swandock probably won't be there for too much longer, and with its rusty razor wire deserves a pretty backdrop.

    Not just any shed, but A Shed. With the masts of STS Leeuwin II visible in the background.
