Along the walkway on the beach front they have planted information plaques.
I just took four of them on Friday night when we were out with the little one.
There are more though that give a full account of the history of shipping timber
from the Rockingham jetties. They were very primitive compared to the standards of today
but atleast it got you your sleepers to build the railways of the U.K.
Do hope you find them interesting.
Thanks to all for your comments again from yesterday, always appreciated.
Have a fun day………

A lot of similarity with the history of Nova Scotia Jocelia, we had dozens of shipyards building wooden ships, loading them with timber and sailing them to Britain where everything was sold, ship and cargo included! At one time Saint John, New Brunswick had the highest registered tonnage of ships of any port in the world! Interesting plaques, well taken!
