Photographer's Note

This is one of the many buildings on Cockatoo Island, the largest island in Sydney Harbour. This island was at various times in our history an imperial prison, a reformatory, an industrial school, a gaol and the site of the largest shipyard in Australia. The drydock was first completed by convicts in 1857 and was in use for over one hundred years. The site was World Heritage Listed in 2010 and can be accessed by ferry from Balmain. The title of my photo refers to the infamous bushranger (outlaw) Captain Thunderbolt who was one of the few prisoners to escape from this island prison. In more recent times, this island has been used in the making of films such as X Men and other local Australian productions. The photo was taken during a meeting with other TE'ers: IFege, PHWall, Burraburra and Farnsey.
