Port Pillar

Port Pillar


The water front here is interesting for the Chinese fishing nets that have been constructed along the coast.

The inscription on the column records that it was erected on 17 October 1890 by JE Winkler, Port Officer.

The other inscriptions say ‘Stick No Bills’, and one appears to be a girls name.

It would seem to be somewhat boastful of someone to inscribe a girls name on such an erection.
