This is a 37.2 cm x 52.5 cm sepia-toned photograph of Station Pier at Sandridge (now Port Melbourne), Victoria. About 60 people stand in the foreground looking up at what must be the photographer, Charles Nettleton, exposing his photographic plate. Various ships, some of which are steam powered, can be seen lining both sides of the wharf, with the ships' masts stretching into the distance. At the lower right of the photograph a steam-powered locomotive can be seen pulling wagon loads of goods.
