Photographer's Note

In 1802 Matthew Flinders named the spot Port Lincoln after his native Lincolnshire in England. Port Lincoln was initially considered as the alternative site for the State's Capital, but was subsequently rejected by Colonel Light in 1836 in favour of Adelaide. Lack of fresh water supplies was a major determining factor.

With its population of 14 000, Port Lincoln is a major commercial centre for the Eyre Peninsula.

Taken on the commercial fishing fleet jetty at Port Lincoln, this shot shows the daily activity on the wharfe.
