Early watercolour: Entrance to Newcastle Harbour by Frank McNamara.
Original was in the possession of the then National Art Gallery of NSW.

Almost the same view as the Pasha Bulker went aground in 2007 with rescue of the crew in progress.
Is it possible that the crew and others were put in more danger by the rescue than if they had remained on board until the storm abated?
Pasha Bulker memorial. The dark coloured 'plate' is from the actual ship.
