Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: As you probably know, it's spring in the Southern Hemisphere. Australia has had a pretty ordinary Spring, although last night was lovely, with a full moon. This is a photo of the wreck of SS Ayrfield in Homebush Bay. Those are full-sized mangrove trees growing in it. There are three other wrecks in the immediate vicinity, this part of Sydney being a true ship's graveyard.

The SS Ayrfield (originally launched as SS Corrimal) was a collier ship built in England in 1911. It was bought and registered by the Australian Government and used during World War II to transport supplies to American troops in the South Pacific. It was sent to Homebush Bay for breaking up and most of it still lies here near Haslams Creek near the Olympic Stadium here in Homebush.

ITALIANO: Come si sapete, è primavera nell'emisfero sud. L'Australia ha avuto una primavera piuttosto ordinario, anche se ieri sera è stato bello, con una luna piena. Questa è una foto del relitto della SS Ayrfield a Homebush Bay. Questi sono alberi di mangrovie a grandezza crescente in esso.

Il Ayrfield SS (originariamente lanciata come SS Corrimal) era una nave carboniera costruito in Inghilterra nel 1911. E 'stato acquistato e registrato dal governo australiano e utilizzata durante la seconda guerra mondiale per trasportare i rifornimenti alle truppe americane nel Pacifico meridionale. E 'stato inviato a Homebush Bay per le rompere e la maggior parte si trova ancora qui vicino a Haslams Creek, vicino allo Stadio Olimpico qui a Homebush.
