Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: This is the Commissariat on Maria Island off the south-east coast of Tasmania. The Commissariat is the oldest building on the Island, having been built in 1828. It peformed the function of being a provisions store during the Island's days as a penal colony. It was the scene of many violent altercations and robberies. In 1837 its use changed to a wool magazine and stable before being changed back again during the second convict era. Today it is the information office for tourists embarking from the quay.
