ABC Wednesdays - P for Port Festival

Port Adelaide is rich in history and it came alive at the Port Festival last October; stories of the past were told by images projected on many of the buildings.

This image is of a scene in 1904 with with ships of the day on the river; a paddle wheel steamship and a sailing ketch.

What a wondeful piece of history, my favorite kind of place to visit.

What a great example of bringing history alive to enrich our present. Port is such a perfect P word, and though I live in Vancouver, it didn't occur to me. Thanks!

History by hologram has been all the rage in Sydney, too, of late.

What a terrific way to share the past! Your image has an almost tree-dimensional quality to it.
